SIQUEIRA, Alisson Rogério C. de et al. Effects of a behavioral intervention in a school setting on hyperactivity and inattention. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.1, pp. 102-118. ISSN 1516-3687.

The clinical characteristics of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be a model to identify and manage behaviors of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity of students without the disorder in the classroom. The objectives of the study were to verify the effects of implementing behavioral management guidelines to reduce these behaviors in a mainstream class. A total of 29 second-year students aged between 6 and 8 years were enrolled in the Experimental Group (EG), in which the guide was used, and a Control Group that kept their usual activities. Behavioral profiles were assessed by parents (CBCL/6-18) and teachers (TRF/6-18) before and after the intervention, in addition to an observation protocol filled by teachers. The results, according to teachers' responses, showed reduction in the frequency of inattention and hyperactivity behaviors in the EG. It can be concluded that the guide was effective in the classroom, with the potential for use in school practice.
