Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to implement an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) intervention program at Westchester Secondary Charter School, a culturally diverse middle and high school located in Los Angeles, California. In addition to conducting an extensive literature review on childhood ADHD, the Eisner Foundation was identified as a possible funding source for this program.

Due to their impairments in sustaining attention and completing tasks, children with ADHD are more likely to repeat grades, receive special education services, and drop out of school than typically developing children. In order to support these students with increasing their overall academic and social functioning, a comprehensive program was developed combining empirically supported child and parent interventions. Following the formulation of a program budget, lessons learned were discussed. Actual submission of the grant was not required for successful completion of this project.
