A Group Counseling Intervention for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Webb, Linda D.; Myrick, Robert D.
Professional School Counseling, v7 n2 p108-115 Dec 2003
A theoretical framework is presented to increase school counselor understanding of students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and support a counselor intervention. This article outlines a six-session group counseling intervention to help students with ADHD understand its effects on their classroom performance and to learn and practice a repertoire of school success skills. The unit is based on the theme of a journey with ADHD students who learn they are different travelers in the world of education and often take alternate routes to their destinations (academic, personal-social, and career goals). Fourteen elementary school counselors received training, delivered the intervention, and completed a post-intervention survey. Student and teacher reports of school success behaviors from the intervention pilot are also reported. (Contains 3 tables.)
