Managing Students with ADHD in Out-of-Class Settings
Kapalka, George M.
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n1 p21-30 Mar 2008
Many students with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) present with behavioral problems that are particularly evident in out-of-class settings (in the lunch room, on the playground, during field trips and special assemblies, etc). Barkley's (1997) technique has been known to help parents handle ADHD children's behaviors in out-of-home situations, and so its effectiveness to reduce problems in out-of-class settings was investigated with 65 teachers of male students previously diagnosed with ADHD. ANOVA revealed that Barkley's technique was effective in reducing the students' behavioral problems in out-of-class settings. This technique is easy to administer and school psychologists will likely find it useful in assisting teachers to handle ADHD students' behavioral problems. (Contains 3 tables.)
