ABSTRACT Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a psychopedagogical intervention. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of a cognitive-behavioural intervention among a sample of students diagnosed with ADHD, belonging to three public and five semi-public Primary Education Schools within the province of Granada. In order to carry out this research several evaluation test were administered to evaluate inhibitory control, motor-perceptive control, memory and attention, considered those as the core features of ADHD, at family and school settings. The intervention consisted of instructing parents and teachers as well as providing training to students. The results show that significant improvement was obtained by students at both family and school settings El propósito del estudio fue determinar el impacto de una intervención cognitivo-conductual sobre una muestra de alumnos diagnosticados con TDAH pertenecientes a ocho centros de enseñanza tres públicos y cinco concertados de Educación Primaria de la Provincia de Granada. Para llevar a cabo el estudio, se utilizaron diversas pruebas con las que se evaluó el control inhibitorio, el control perceptivomotor, la memoria y la atención, consideradas como las manifestaciones más comunes del TDAH, en el contexto familiar y escolar. La intervención se basó en la formación de padres y docentes, así como en un posterior entrenamiento específico y directo sobre el alumnado. Los resultados de la intervención, muestran que se han producido mejoras significativas en las conductas problema que presentaban los alumnos, tanto en el contexto familiar como escolar.

    ABSTRACT: El objetivo del presente estudio fue comparar los conocimientos sobre TDAH de 405 estudiantes de Magisterio de la Universidad de Valencia (275 de primer curso y 130 de tercer curso) y 193 maestros en activo de diversas escuelas de la provincia de Valencia. Ambas muestras cumplimentaron el Knowledge of Attention Deficit Disorder Scale (KADDS) en su versión española, adaptada por los autores del presente estudio, cuyo objetivo es evaluar los conocimientos del TDAH. Los resultados mostraron un porcentaje medio de aciertos de los ítems del cuestionario del 34.72% en los alumnos de 1°, del 43.6% en los de 3°, y del 42.65% en los maestros en activo. Los alumnos de 1° mostraron tener significativamente menos conocimientos sobre el TDAH que los alumnos de 3° y los maestros en activo. No se encontraron diferencias significativas entre los alumnos de 3° y los maestros en activo. Finalmente, se comentan las implicaciones para la formación inicial de estudiantes de magisterio y formación continua de maestros en activo en el manejo del TDAH.The objective of the present study was to compare knowledge of ADHD in 405 pre-service teachers who studied at the University of Valencia (275 were 1st course students, and 130 were 3rd course students), and 193 teachers from public and private schools in Valencia (Spain). All participants completed the Spanish version of the Knowledge of Attention Deficit Disorder Scale (KADDS), adapted by the present authors. The aim of KADDS is to assess knowledge of ADHD. 1st course students solved correctly 34.72% of items, 3rd course students solved correctly 43.6% of items, and primary school teachers solved correctly 42.65% of items. 1st course students had significantly less knowledge related to ADHD than 3rd course students and active teachers. No differences were found between 3rd course students and active teachers. Implications related to teachers' training regarding ADHD management are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: This study reviews cognitive programmes applied to children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It carries out an in-depth analysis of the programmes that include self-regulation training, their efficiency, the most suitable conditions for their application and the effect produced by their combination with other cognitive and behavioural techniques. Finally, this study explains the clinical results derived from the application of a self- regulation scheme adapted from Meichenbaum's Self-Instructional Training Programme (Orjales, 1991), the application of this scheme with new self regulations, and the use of such scheme for the selection and sequencing of training tasks.

    ABSTRACT: This article consists of a review of 16 research studies on treatments in school settings for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) carried out in the last decade. It includes both simple interventions and multicomponent interventions where different techniques are combined. Based on this revision, the conclusion is drawn that, based on the evidence, school-based treatments for ADHD are effective in the short run for reducing disruptive behaviors and improving on-task behavior and academic performance of children with ADHD. Issues regarding the limitations to generalizing the improvements over time and across content areas are discussed. Furthermore, results from the MTA—a study designed to compare the efficacy of behavioral treatment (BT), medical management (MM), combined treatment (BT and MM), and a routine community care control group—are discussed. The MTA findings suggest that the most effective treatment for ADHD is a multimodal intervention that frequently includes concurrent medication in addition to parent training, school interventions, and child intervention.
