Synopses & Reviews
This popular reference and text provides essential guidance for school-based professionals meeting the challenges of ADHD at any grade level. A team-based approach to intervention is emphasized in chapters offering research-based guidelines for identifying and assessing children with ADHD and those at risk; understanding learning difficulties associated with the disorder; developing an overall intervention and support plan for each student; implementing behavioral, academic, and social support strategies in the classroom; monitoring medication use and collaborating effectively with physicians; and conducting adjunctive interventions, such as parent training. Comprehensive and practical, the book includes several reproducible assessment tools and handouts.
This highly regarded practitioner guide provides state-of-the-art tools for supporting the academic and behavioral success of K-12 students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The authors explain the learning and behavior difficulties associated with ADHD and describe screening and assessment procedures that facilitate data-based decision making. They show how to develop individualized intervention plans that integrate behavioral, academic, and social supports, in partnership with teachers and parents. Strategies for collaborating with physicians and monitoring students' medication response are also presented. Helpful reproducible forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
