Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An Investigation of the Knowledge of Educators and Parents about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
by Kindred, Alexis, M.S., Minot State University, 2019, 41; 22582911
Abstract (Summary)

The prevalence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has grown steadily in the past decade with 6.1 million US school-aged children having this diagnosis. Replicating an Australian study, this study investigates the knowledge of ADHD in educators and parents in one rural school district in an upper mid-west state. Results indicate both educators and parents possess knowledge about ADHD; although, educators had higher levels of knowledge than parents. Comparisons to the Australian study as well as implications of the current study are discussed.
