Reid (special education and communication disorders, U. of Nebraska-Lincoln) and Johnson (educational studies, U. of Wisconsin-La Crosse) offer tools teachers can use to help students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder improve their behavior, self-regulation, and academic, social, and organizational skills. They address myths and misperceptions about ADHD, problems posed by it, and its history, features, diagnostic criteria, comorbid conditions, and major theories, then the assessment process, types of instruments, and those commonly used in schools. They discuss how children with ADHD are served in schools and fit into the special education system, classroom accommodations and ancillary services, program planning, and questionable treatments, as well as how to involve parents, including a home-school intervention. They describe major types of medication and side effects, the school's role in medication treatments, the use of functional behavior assessment, and various interventions and instructions for their implementation.
