Synopsis

Educators are becoming aware of an ever-increasing number of students exhibiting characteristics of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) and the resulting need to develop methods of dealing with the challenges presented by this very complex disorder. A child with AD/HD typically exhibits behaviors such as excessive motor activity, impulsivity, and inattentiveness. Through a study of the research, educators may come to a deeper understanding of the disorder and more effectively meet the needs of affected students. Although there is a great deal of research being done on AD/HD, many parents and educators are at a loss when it comes to how best to serve the students. A number of misconceptions regarding AD/HD have developed, which this book attempts to dispel through a review of selected research studies. The areas of focus include causes, diagnosis, co-occurring disorders, and interventions or treatments for AD/HD. Appendices include definitions of terms and additional resources for educators.

CAROL R. LENSCH is Assistant Professor in the Education Department at Hollins University, Virginia.
