Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The purpose of this study was to investigate both teacher and parent perspectives on services provided to and needs of children with ADHD. Through this research, we explored perceived needs, current services implemented, the effectiveness of current strategies, and resource and educational needs of teachers and parents. The research identified gaps in services and education from both the teacher and parent perspectives that align with the services that can be readily provided by an OT.
