What is PAINT-T?

PAINT- T (PhD student Anouck Staff) examines the effectiveness of different elements of teacher training for ADHD symptoms.

  • Study 1: examining effectiveness of Antecedent vs Consequent Interventions (micro-trial)

  • Study 2: examining additional effects of consequent interventions to Antecedent interventions (single-case study)

  • Meta-analysis: The validity of teacher rating scales for the assessment of ADHD in the classroom: A systematic review and meta-analysis (submitted)

Currently, microtrial data collection (n=90) is completed and data analysis has started. First results are presented in July at the WCBCT conference in Berlin and in September at the Eunethydis conference in Nijmegen and a first manuscript is in preparation. Overall the results look very promising. Teacher were enthusiastic regarding the intervention and positive effects were seen for both the antecendent and consequent interventions on (daily measured) target behavior and standardized ADHD teacher ratings, both at post-intervention and at follow-up. We are currently analyzing behavioral observations using a standardized observation system (video analysis). Data collection of the single-case study is ongoing.
