Abstract

 

This study was an investigation of general education teachersí knowledge and attitudes regarding students with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). Of interest were (a) the extent of teachersí knowledge about characteristics of AD/HD; (b) the extent of teachersí knowledge of teacher skills appropriate for educating students with AD/HD; and (c) the extent of teachersí willingness to accommodate students with AD/HD. There was an initial assessment of teachersí knowledge and attitudes (pretest) followed by a workshop designed to increase teachersí knowledge and improve their attitudes. An additional assessment of their knowledge and attitudes (posttest) was then administered. Results and implications for future research are discussed within this article.
