A screening procedure was used to identify K through 3-grade…

Bennett, Deborah E.; Zentall, Sydney S.; French, Brian F.; Giorgetti-Borucki, Karen – Behavioral Disorders, 2006
Providing choice to individual students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has previously been demonstrated (in single-subject research) to reduce undesirable behavior but has failed to demonstrate gains that are independent of task difficulty or interests/ preferences. We examined choice of feedback type on a computerized math…
