PAINT-T

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.

The goal

We, researchers from Accare, the Free University of Amsterdam and the University of Groningen, have developed a short-term programme aimed at reducing problem behaviour in the classroom. With the research of PAINT-T, we aim to improve the care of children with ADHD and behavioural problems at school and offer teachers a feasible and effective programme.

PAINT-C

The PAINT-C study maps the care for children with ADHD and/or hyperactive behaviour in the Netherlands at municipalities, CJGs/District Teams and schools and investigates what predicts treatment choices in ADHD.

PLOS

The study PLOS (Planning at School) investigates the effectiveness of a programme to support secondary school students with planning problems. PLOS consists of two parts PLOS-basic and PLOS-extra.

PAINT-P

In PAINT-P the effectiveness of the components of parental training for ADHD was studied and in the follow-up studies Paint-POH, Paint-GZ and Paint-Pc the effectiveness of combined parental training in different settings will be studied.
