Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Academic Strategies

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is a neurobiological based developmental disorder with impaired executive function (EF). This impairment includes the ability to plan, organize information, and problem solve. Children affected with this disorder experience challenges at home, school, and in social settings. This Master’s Project reviews empirical research examining: executive and neurocognitive function, subtypes of ADHD, medication and other treatment options, co-morbid disorders such as Conduct Disorder (CD), and Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD). In addition, empirical data will reveal how ADHD affects family life; academic deficits will be addressed along with strategic skill for the ADHD child to use at home and in school for higher achievement success.
