by Machula, Miranda, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2014, 45; 1560053
Abstract (Summary)

This study aims to increase understanding of teacher knowledge about Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). One hundred teachers completed the Knowledge of Attention Deficit Disorders Scale (KADDS) and a demographic questionnaire. Results indicate that teachers knew significantly more about the symptoms of ADHD than its treatment or general facts about the disorder. Special education teachers had significantly higher KADDS scores than general education teachers.
