Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and reading achievement
journal contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Kathleen Baker
This paper provides a 'snap-shot' of current perceptions regarding the nature of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), an overview of current medical and educational interventions for the disorder, and describes a reading intervention designed to address the impact of executive function deficits in the reading process. The intervention strategy uses a combination of cognitive training, strategy training and medication in a multimodal intervention to improve the reading behaviour of ADHD children and promote associated reading achievement.
