Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Assisting Latino children with ADHD: A grant proposal
by Rivera, Lorena Reyes, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 77; 1527578
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a funding source, and write a grant to develop a program that would offer social skills groups to Latino children diagnosed with ADHD and psychoeducation support groups for their parents and/or caregivers at The Guidance Center in Long Beach, California. The purpose of this program is to provide children with social skills to assist them to identify triggers to their behaviors, learn coping skills, and improve communication and problem resolution skills in order to improve their peer and family interactions. The psychoeducation parent support groups aims to offer education about ADHD, provide social support, and teach appropriate parenting skills. The Weingart Foundation is the potential funder for the proposed grant. The actual submission of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
