This workshop provides an overview of school-based interventions for students with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Dr. DuPaul begins the workshop by describing how to implement various school-based interventions, such as organizational/study skills training, peer tutoring, self-management, and computer-assisted instruction. He describes an assessment approach to link a child’s acting-out behavior to behavioral functions. Dr. DuPaul also works through three case examples of children (ages 7, 9, and 13) with ADHD who have difficulty in a school setting. Lastly, progress monitoring, data-based decision making, and special education is covered.
