      Stewart, Tammy I.; The College at Brockport (2006-01-01)
      The study was conducted to help add knowledge to the literature about supporting children diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It was hypothesized that through the use of group counseling, self-concept and knowledge and understanding of the disorder would increase. The Piers-Harris Self-Concept Scale and a self-constructed survey were the instruments used in the study. The results of the study showed that the level of self-concept of the students in the counseling group did not increase but their knowledge and understanding of ADHD did. The researcher concluded that group counseling similar to that in the study could serve as a useful form of treatment for school counselors in trying to support the emotional wellbeing of students with ADHD.
