by Martin, Wendy L., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 53; 1472329
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to introduce an intervention, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a program that would provide a much needed resource to children in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). An extensive literature review increased knowledge about ADHD as well as introduce a NASA created biofeedback device which would help children with ADHD learn to self-regulate the core symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and a grant database resulted in the selection of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. A grant was then written to support a program which would purchase the device for its use in a chosen site within the LAUSD.
