Status: Microtrial: completed; Paint- T trial: in preparation
In the Paint-T trial, the effectiveness of the components (antecedent & consequent techniques) of teacher training was examined by conducting a microtrial. and in the follow-up study (Paint T trial) the effectiveness of a combined teacher training will be examined.
For children with ADHD or behavioural problems, the school environment can be a challenge because the expected behaviour often conflicts with the symptoms that are characteristic of, for example, ADHD. Common problems that interfere with functioning well at school are inattention, not being able to follow instructions adequately, not completing tasks, being quiet, difficulty working independently, interaction with peers and teachers (Kos et al., 2006).
In order to support teachers and children, Paint-T was created: a short-term teacher intervention based on behavioural therapeutic techniques.
