This week, you explored several intervention strategies for helping with ADHD and the research assessing their effectiveness. You also became familiar with key considerations when implementing any sort of intervention for this disorder, including the importance of obtaining supportive, active “buy-in” from everyone involved in the treatment. Cody was assessed by the school district and is eligible for special education services through the IEP process (Individual Educated Plan).
You and Mrs. Rivera spoke to an outside therapist who assessed that Cody can use some help in the school environment, so you spoke to his teacher. You presented the therapist’s behavior management plan designed to help him to focus and concentrate while minimizing his disruptiveness. The teacher knows that school personnel do not have to implement behavior plans from outside therapists and responds that she already has her hands full and she is not interested in adding any more responsibilities. She tells you that if you want the school to implement any sort of intervention, then Mrs. Rivera must request an IEP to present the report to the IEP team..
Mrs. Rivera requests an IEP meeting to present the outside report and asks you to attend the meeting with her.
For this assignment, describe the strategies the therapist may be proposing to help Cody in the classroom. Based on your understanding of the research literature:
- Describe, in detail, your ideas for helping Cody with his ADHD in the classroom.
- Explain your rationale for each idea (e.g., Why should the teacher put the entire class on a reward system?).
- Convince the stakeholders that there will be substantial value to all involved if your ideas are implemented consistently and carefully.
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
