Parents have been included in intervention programs aiming to reduce their children problems, but evidences of the programs impact exclusively with parents are scarce. This study evaluated, in an experimental design, the effects of an Educational Social Skills Program on the behavior of children with Attention-Deficits/ Hyperactive-Disorder (ADHD), focusing mothers' the social and instructional repertoire of parents and children' social skills, behavior problems of academic competence. Eight mothers were allocated in Experimental Group (EG) and eight in Control (CG). Pre, post and follow-up evaluations were accomplished with inventories (IHS-Del-Prette and SSRS-BR) and direct observation in structured situation. Non parametric statistics assay (Mann-Whitney) indicated the positive impact of the program on the EG mothers' and children' repertoire, with generalization to the family context and maintenance of the indicators in the follow-up. Practical implications of the results, as well as limitations of this study are discussed.
