To do this, ADHD Scales using teacher was discussed with a specialist group consisting of 3 doctors in degree at Early Childhood Education and Child Development and 3 teachers of early childhood centers. And then the data was collected in 1 class(four-years) at early childhood center. So, the subjects of this study were 32 children(boy 18/girl 14) and their 2 teachers. Statistics used for data analysis were Frequency, t-test, inter-observer and test-retest reliability. The major findings of this study were as follows: First, the prevalence of children with ADHD based on teachers rating are 3(teacher1) and 4(teacher2). Second, according to the item analysis of ADHD, teachers are rating similar on children with ADHD Scale(DSM-IV). Third, inter-observer and test-retest reliability were significant. In conclusion, it is considered that the ADHD Rating Scale(DSM-IV) has validity using teachers in Early Childhood Center. / 본 연구에서는 ADHD진단 검사 중 오늘날 가장 널리 사용되고 있는 도구인 「정신장애진단 및 통계편람(DSM-IV)」을 유아교육기관에서 교사가 사용하였을 때, 타당도가 어떠한지 살펴보았다. 전문가와 교사집단과의 사전 연구를 통해 ADHD진단척도와 연구대상을 위한 기준이 제시되었고, 4세아 1개 반(유아 32명, 담임교사 2명)이 선정되었다. 교사들은 학기가 시작된 지 6개월과 9개월 이후 2회에 걸쳐 유아의 ADHD성향을 측정하였다. 그리고 평정자 간 신뢰도와 검사-재검사 신뢰도를 살펴보았다. 연구결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 한 교실에서 교사가 평가한 ADHD 성향유아는 3명(교사1)과 4명(교사2)으로 밝혀졌다. 둘째, ADHD에 대한「정신장애진단 및 통계편람(DSM-IV)」의 문항분석 결과, 교사들의 의견이 대부분 비슷하였다. 셋째, 교사들의 평정자 간신뢰도와 검사-재검사 신뢰도는 통계적으로 유의하였다.

Whole-Group Instruction Practices and Children's Attention: A Preliminary Report

Available from: Taylor and Francis Online

Publication: Journal of Research in Childhood Education, vol. 26, no. 2

Abstract/Notes: This study developed a typology of recommended teacher practices related to whole-group instruction in preschool classrooms and examined the relationship between teachers' use of the practices and children's attentiveness. Thirty-nine classrooms in 31 schools (15 public and 16 private) were observed during regularly scheduled whole-group instruction sessions. Bivariate correlations indicated a positive relationship between children's attentiveness and number of practices that teachers used, but not between attentiveness and length of activity. Regression analyses suggested a set of eight specific practices that are related, with length of activity, to children's attentiveness.

Abstract/Notes: This study to determine effects of preschool training of mentally retarded children from low-income families asks three major questions: 1. Does preschool training displace the rate of development of such children? 2. Does rate of growth continue at an accelerated rate, or does it return to the original rate of development during primary school years? 3. Are the results similar for children living in different environments? Five intervention programs are outlined: 1. Traditional nursery school; 2. Community Integrated program; 3. The Montessori method; 4. Karnes structured cognitive plan; and 5. The Bereiter-Englemann(B-E). As a result of the program, some children in the demonstration center no longer function in the retarded range. Behavior has improved and several have entered a public school or preschool for normal children. It is suggested that mothers of infants might accomplish more at home with guidance, since professional tutoring is not feasibly practical, and children with higher IQ need special early programming to attain their potential.

Abstract/Notes: "The children who demand more attention than others, who are disruptive, unmotivated, oppositional, aggressive, or do not give us the positive feedback we get from others…This is where we dig in and find compassion, and understanding, and the knowledge that no child wants to be disruptive, oppositional, or aggressive. They do this because they are hurt, and we are here to help." Sarah Werner Andrews provides an approach to the children who pose a challenge because they themselves are facing challenges. She offers practical tools and approaches that are first based on positive relationships, then on the relationship with the environment, and finally on positive, collaborative interventions. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "Children on the Edge: Creating a Path for Happy, Healthy Development," January 12-15, 2017 in New Orleans, LA.]
