Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In the past ten years, many people have become aware of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This sudden increase in awareness has been good, since more children with ADHD are now being properly diagnosed and treated. Furthermore, classroom teachers and parents are beginning to understand this disorder and how to manage it. Fewer parents feel the issues their children are having are their fault because they did not have a "good" parenting style (Phelan, 2000). The purpose of this paper is to continue to increase awareness about ADHD, the effects it has on children, and the treatments and interventions used to maintain or control the symptoms of the disorder. This will be accomplished through an overview of the definition, symptoms, prevalence, treatment, and interventions relative to ADHD.
