Monica Stierman 10/24/2010 EDP 3310 Effective Practices of Interventions for Students with ADHD Children living with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, can be successful in the classroom if teachers can figure out which interventions would be useful. In order for this to happen, teachers should research different studies about what kind of interventions can be successful for their students with ADHD. There are many empirical research articles to read on different intervention strategies like the following: Self-Monitoring of Attention Versus Self- Monitoring of Academic Performance: Effects Among Students with ADHD in the General Education Classroom 1 , The Effects of Self-Monitoring of Academic Performance on Students with Learning Disabilities and ADD/ADHD 2 , Consultation-based Academic Interventions for Children with ADHD: Effects on Reading and Mathematics Achievement 3 , The Effects of Computerized Reading Instruction on the Academic Performance of Students Identified with 1 1 Harris, Karen, Friedlander, Barbara Danoff, Saddler, Bruce, Frizzelle, Remedios, and Graham, Steve (2005).

ADHD 4 , and Investigation of a Direct Intervention for Improving Attention in Young Children With ADHD 5 . For this paper, I will be referring to these journals as: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. There were different methods used for each journal. The study for Journal 1 took place in an elementary school in a large city and had 6 students from the 3 rd -5 th grade (five boys and one girl). Each of these students had different diagnoses for ADHD but all were on medicine to help with the disorder. They each had other disorders diagnosed, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourette’s. The study for Journal 2 was based on three male students (one sixth grader and two seventh graders) and was in a self-contained, mixed grade classroom in a private school. In this journal, it specifies that these students: performed within average range of intelligence on individualized school evaluations, were identified by a multidisciplinary team as having a learning disability, were diagnosed medically as having ADD/ADHD, were able to perform academic tasks or skills during academic instruction and independent practice as

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
