The Effects of Automated Prompting and Self-Monitoring on Homework Completion for a Student with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Blicha, Amy; Belfiore, Phillip J.
Journal of Education and Learning, v2 n3 p51-60 2013
This study examined the effects of an intervention consisting of automated prompting and self-monitoring on the level of independent homework task completion for an elementary-age student with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Instituting a single subject, within series ABAB design, the results showed a consistent increase and stability in homework task completion following the introduction of a vibrating alarm wristwatch and a self-monitoring homework routine checklist. Stable homework performance continued through the 5-month follow-up, as well as following a termination and change in medications which occurred during month two and three of the follow-up phase. Additionally, academic performance as measured by mathematics and language arts school term grades showed improvement. Results are discussed in light of parents as active co-problem-solvers, the role of applied behavioral action research, and the efficacy of self-management with students with ADHD.
