Professional Development for Teachers of Students with ADHD and Characteristics of ADHD
Zentall, Sydney S.; Javorsky, James
Behavioral Disorders, v32 n2 p78-93 Feb 2007
Inservice education has the potential to provide teachers with knowledge and skills that are necessary to manage challenging classroom behavior and improve academic and social/emotional outcomes. To assess the effectiveness of 3 inservice programs that focused on knowledge, understanding, and/or functional-assessment interventions, we identified 49 educators of students with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and 196 of their students. Three months after implementing all programs we found improved teachers' attitudes about and confidence in teaching students with ADHD and improved self-reported ability to provide accommodations. Our findings were documented differentially in a comparison of program type and by real changes in teaching practices and in ratings and observations of student behavior. (Contains 3 tables.)
