Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of a homework intervention program designed to include children with ADHD. Children participated in a 5-week homework skills class, with their parents attending a one time homework training session. In conjunction with this class, parents were attending a 10-week behavioral parenting program. Participants included 11 children (4 diagnosed with ADHD) from 1st through 6th grade who were randomly assigned to start the homework skills class during the first or second 5 weeks of the program. Homework skills taught in the class included organization, learning styles, homework routines, time-management, goal-setting, self-management, and increasing motivation. Parent reports on the Homework Problem Checklist showed no significant treatment effects; however, trends showed a decrease in homework problems at post-treatment and follow-up, specifically for children with more severe homework problems. This is a potentially effective homework intervention for children who have severe homework problems with or without an ADHD diagnosis. Implications, limitations, and future research are discussed.
