On-Task Behavior of Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Examining Treatment Effectiveness of Play Therapy Interventions



Credits: None available.

Standard: $10.00

Description

This study focused on examining the treatment effect associated with two 12-sessioninterventions (child-centered play therapy and nature-based child-centered play therapy) among early elementary schoolchildren (N8) who had an attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder diagnosis. Children were randomly assigned to one of the treatment groups or the wait list group. We found that the child-centered play therapy intervention ranged from debatable (n1) to effective (n2) and the nature-based child-centered play therapy intervention ranged from debatable (n1) to very effective (n1), with one participant also scoring in the effective range for improving on-task behavior. In comparison, the wait list group participants had a large fluctuation in scores, with the analysis revealing that non involvement in treatment was ineffective for improving on-task behavior.

Learning Objectives:
  • Examine the effectiveness of play therapy interventions for children with an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis.
  • Define ADHD and its prevalence among children.
  • Explore the implications of using play therapy interventions with children with ADHD.
