ADHD Symptom Reduction in Elementary Students: A Single-Case Effectiveness Design
Schottelkorb, April A.; Ray, Dee C.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n1 p11-22 Oct 2009
The authors used a single-case design to examine the effectiveness of child-centered play therapy (CCPT) and person-centered teacher consultation (PCTC) for four elementary students identified with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Two students participated in CCPT and their teachers participated in PCTC. Two students participated in reading mentoring and CCPT. Behavioral observations of all students occurred three times per week. Results indicated that two students demonstrated a substantial reduction and two students demonstrated questionable reduction in ADHD symptoms due to participation in CCPT. Implications for elementary school counselors are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
