Hema K. J.

Abstract :

 

Relative to the voluminous research literature in psychology and education, ADHD has been the most studied of all psychological disorders in children and is one of the most common reasons for referring children to psychiatric and mental health agencies. ADHD is currently recognized as a disorder with behavioral, emotional, educational and cognitive aspects that are manifested in some degree in a child with ADHD. It is quite astonishing to realize that despite decades of research in this field, children with ADHD continue to encounter significant difficulties to succeed in schools.  In order to address the various issues related to ADHD the investigator evinced a keen interest in identifying major school-related problems of students with ADHD. The investigator conducted a descriptive survey among 50 secondary school teachers selected through stratified random sampling technique giving due representation to locality and type of management of school. Data was collected using semi-structured interview for teachers and ADHD symptom checklist. Percentage analysis was used for data interpretation. Practitioners in the fields of psychology and education must increase their understanding of the limitations of students with this disorder to provide a pleasant school experience to affected students. The investigator hopes that this paper will help to strengthen the hands of teachers, parents and other important stake holders.
