The School Supports Checklist: Identifying Support Needs and Barriers for Children with ADHD
McKinley, Lori A.; Stormont, Melissa A.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v41 n2 p14-19 Nov-Dec 2008
Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at a significant risk for experiencing failure in school. The School Supports Checklist (SSC) helps to identify potential classroom-based supports for children with ADHD in elementary school. The checklist can be used to support planning and overcoming barriers for increasing access to the general education curriculum for children with ADHD. The SSC is a revised version of the School Modifications Assessment Checklist (SMAC), a descriptive survey that was used to collect data on the frequency that specific accommodations were used with students with ADHD. McKinley revised the SMAC as the SSC to reflect current knowledge of support needs for ADHD according to leading potential barriers for use with children with ADHD. (Contains 2 figures.)
