Title Community Based ADHD Parent/Educator Training
AAP Grant ID 1918
Project Year 2011
City & State Mobile, AL
Program Name CATCH Implementation
Topic ADHD
Program Description
I propose to provide evidence based parent and teacher training for effective behavioral and educational interventions for patients with ADHD in a community setting. It is challenging to provide multimodal care for patients with ADHD within the medical home. The goal of this project is to support six quality pediatric medical home practices that provide care to inner city, minority and economically disadvantaged children in Mobile by providing this training resource to their patients families. After separate parent and teacher focus groups meet to help inform our team of their needs curriculum will be finalized. During the project Educators from six elementary schools, four public and two Catholic, in the area served by these practices will each receive one hour of instruction in evidence based behavior modification strategies and interventions for improving classroom attention and behavior. Six one hour parent training sessions will be scheduled in the downtown and/or midtown area of Mobile.
1. Train parents of patients with ADHD in evidence based behavioral/educational practices to compliment the medical treatment these patients receive in the medical home. 2. Train teachers in evidence based behavioral /educational practices and ADHD related medical treatment to enhance their effectiveness in teaching students with ADHD. 3. Train elementary school students in organizational, self monitoring techniques to improve behavioral outcomes for their ADHD.
