From Clinic to School: Adapting a Homework Intervention Program for ADHD in School Settings.
Karustis, James L.; Habboushe, Dina F.; Leff, Stephen S.; Eiraldi, Ricardo B.; Power, Thomas J.
This paper briefly outlines the Homework Success Program (HSP), a family-school intervention program for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The HSP uses a conjoint behavioral approach, emphasizing the importance of implementing behavioral interventions that involve parents, teachers, and students. The primary goals of the program are increasing rates of homework completion and accuracy, promoting home-school collaboration, and reducing parent-child conflict during homework time. Although the HSP has typically been conducted in clinic settings, the authors advocate expanding the HSP, consistent with an emerging trend in school psychology in which such programs are conducted in school settings as well as in clinics. This paper was presented to conference participants to describe the HSP's curriculum and its implementation in school settings. Participants were expected to gain a basic understanding of the core program components, improve their parent-teacher collaboration skills, and learn how to implement the system in schools.
