ADD Teacher Inservice Project. Final Grant Report.
Edwards, Mark C.; Schulz, Eldon G.
The report describes activities and achievements of the Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) Teacher Inservice Project. The inservice program was developed using a formal process to identify the critical issues related to ADD awareness, assessment, and intervention. Program content was designed to address critical issues identified in the research literature. Comprehensive training materials were developed for each of the following modules: (1) characteristics, assessment, and management of ADD--an overview; (2) the school and ADD; (3) educational identification and assessment of ADD; (4) medical issues and medication management of ADD; (5) understanding behavior; and (6) specific classroom interventions for ADD. Training materials developed include presenter scripts, comprehensive participant handouts, audio-visual materials (slides, overheads, video tape), and evaluation materials. The 22-hour program was targeted primarily toward regular and special education teachers, as well as administrators, counselors, school nurses and related personnel. Dissemination was accomplished through direct training and adoption of a training of trainers model. The project has provided over 1,500 hours of direct training to more than 5,300 teachers and other personnel. The program was disseminated systematically across Arkansas and 352 individuals have been trained as inservice trainers, including participants from 13 different states. (Author/DB)
