A school-based multimodal intervention program for children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
This project is a program proposal for a school-based multimodal intervention program for children 6-12 years of age with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Based on a review of the literature and theoretical concepts from Lazarus' technical eclecticism and multimodal treatment and Bandura's theory of learning, the proposed program includes a biobehavioral component which is not included in most programs at the present time. Primary program goals are to develop self-control and problem-solving skills to help improve student behavioral and academic performance, and to reinforce generalization and transfer effects. The program includes training and support services to children and teachers, as well as program follow-up and evaluation to determine treatment efficacy. Pre- and post-intervention evaluation measures will be utilized to evaluate attention, self-control, self-concept, and academic performance.
