Author information

  • 1School of Psychology, James Madison University, USA.


The effects of a set of behavioral and educational interventions provided in a middle-school-based mental health program on the behavior and academic performance of 7 students diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were studied. The treatments included educational, social skills and family interventions designed to target school functioning, peer relations, and family functioning. Dependent measures included parent and teacher ratings of ADHD symptoms, daily functioning, and academic grades. Large effect sizes were found on measures of inattention and school functioning. Grades and measures of family functioning and peer relations yielded small to moderate effect sizes. Description of the procedures is provided and implications for advancing school-based mental health care for adolescents with a diagnosis of ADHD are discussed.
