School-Based Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Schultz, Brandon K.; Storer, Jennifer; Watabe, Yuko; Sadler, Joanna; Evans, Steven W.
Psychology in the Schools, v48 n3 p254-262 Mar 2011
The authors review the research literature regarding school-based treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Students with ADHD often do not receive access to special services, even though the impairments associated with the disorder often compromise learning and cause concerns for classroom teachers, school administrators, and support staff. Several school-based psychosocial interventions that have shown promise in the research literature are described. The authors conclude by offering their perspective on the opportunities and challenges inherent in school-based services for students with ADHD, with a focus on cognitive and behavioral interventions.
