ADHD Interventions EDFN 645 Adapted from Jason Harlacher, MS, NCSP Washoe County School District University of Oregon
Effective Support • Understanding need for external incentive/feedback • Behavior expectations proactively taught • Instruction matches skill level
Modifications Preferential seating One-step directions Brief transitions Minimizing distractions Use of praise (4:1)
Praise Specific Behavior Praise Statements (SBPS) Example: “Sally, I like the way you’re sitting at your desk and working quietly.” or “Jimmy, I’m glad you raised your hand and waited.” Non-example: “Good job!” 1 SBPS/10 minutes = 47% on-task 1 SBPS/2 minutes = 89% on-task
Academic Interventions ClassWide Peer Tutoring (CWPT) Computer-Assisted-Instruction (CAI) Choice-Making Instructional Modification Academic:target the academic deficits Behavioral:target behavioral symptoms
Class wide Peer Tutoring Students are paired together and provide instruction, assistance, and feedback to each other work together on an academic activity + frequent & immediate feedback - setup time · social function
Computer Assisted Instruction Computer-based programs that serve as supplements to traditional instruction + natural extension of instruction, “extra practice” - curriculum and program mismatch? · practice in a very visual format
Choice Making Student makes a choice between teacher selected assignments Selects work from a teacher-developed menu + student autonomy, easy to implement - use with caution · defiance, low to no work completion
