Peer Tutoring Effects on the Classroom Performance of Children With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
George J. DuPaul, Patricia North Henningson
Class wide peer tutoring procedures involve instructional procedures (e.g., provision of frequent, immediate feedback) that are known to be successful for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The implementation of peer tutoring for one student with ADHD is described in detail, with results indicating significant improvements in attention to instruction, task irrelevant activity level, and acquisition of mathematics skills. Peer tutoring may be a viable adjunct and/or alternative to teacher-mediated behavioral interventions for ADHD.
