Teacher Consultation Research in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Cause for Congratulation or Consolation?
Erum Nadeem, Peter S. Jensen
There is little doubt of the important role that schools play in providing services to children with emotional and behavioral disorders (e.g., Burns et al., 1995; Leaf et al., 1996). Seventy to eighty percent of children who receive mental health services get them in schools (Burns et al., 1995). Despite this increased attention to schools as a provider of mental health services, there has been relatively little empirical research evaluating interventions that target specific emotional and behavioral disorders (Rones & Hoagwood, 2000) within school settings. Moreover, the small amount of school-based mental health intervention research has generally neglected to focus specifically on improving and testing effect on academic outcomes (Hoagwood, Olin, Kerker, Kratochwill, Crowe, & Saka, 2007).
