Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent condition effecting students in the general education classroom. Six of the most common behavioral disruptions by ADHD students have been identified, including distractibility, out of seat behaviors, vocalization, inattention, incomplete work and defiance. Teachers of these students are often unprepared to address these students' behavioral and academic needs. An interactive website,, was developed to provide teachers with a convenient location to easily access research-based interventions to implement with their students with ADHD. The website has listed those disruptions with accompanying interventions for each. Expert reviewers provided feedback and suggestions on the website's content and recommended interventions. The website was presented to a group of elementary level general education teachers representing one school district for their input and evaluation. General education teachers found the website to be useful and easy to navigate. It addressed some of the issues that general educators face in having students with ADHD in their classroom. Students with ADHD will have better trained teachers who will have a resource that addresses the students' specific needs. Information about this new resource will be distributed to teachers, school psychologists and other school personnel through professional associations such as the National Education Association, National School Psychology Association and the American Association of School Administrators.
