The present study examined the effectiveness of a multimodal intervention for young children with ADHD. Fifty families were randomly assigned to three treatment conditions: (1) child group training only (N=18); (2) child and parent group training only (N=14); and (3) child and parent group training and parent/teacher consultation (N=18). Child, parent and teacher measures were administered at baseline, program completion, and 4-month follow-up. Repeated measures ANOVAs and preplanned comparisons (i.e., paired t-tests) with Dunn-Bonferroni adjustment were computed to test between group and within group effects. Effect sizes and Jacobson and Trauxs (1991) standard of error of difference statistic were computed. C3 participants exhibited greater behavioral improvements on several parent-completed measures than C2 and C1 participants at program completion and four-month follow-up. C3 participants also exhibited more reduction in internalizing distress and transfer of treatment gains to the school at program completion and follow-up than C2 and C1 participants. (Author)
