Editorial Note: Research Updates on Teacher Consultation for Children With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Thomas J. Power
A brief survey of the science base in school psychology and related fields reveals that there have been numerous school intervention studies published about students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is not surprising given the high prevalence of the disorder (3% to 10%) and the important and exciting roles that school mental health professionals can serve in addressing the needs of these children and their families. The articles related to the special topic of this issue are unique in that they describe research conducted in general education settings, as opposed to specialized schools or summer camps, and they investigate the effectiveness of intervention delivered indirectly via teacher consultation.
