PORTILLO, Petrona  e  WIENS, Tanja. "ADHD: knowledge, praxis and attitude of teachers of BSE". Eureka [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.1, pp. 28-39. ISSN 2220-9026.

The following investigation covers the teaching experience of educators in Basic Education (grades 1-9) teaching children between the ages of six and twelve who present characteristics of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. As for methodology, semistructured interviews were conducted with teachers of a public subsidized school and a private school. The study objectives aimed to explore the theoretical and practical knowledge of the interviewed educators about this syndrome, the measures they take in classroom situations, and the attitudes they reveal concerning feasible modifications in the teaching conditions, as well as revealing possible differences in the answers based on the type of school. The data collected through these interviews were subjected to qualitative analysis and hermeneutic interpretation. The first three goals of the research study were considered achieved, meanwhile the accomplishment of the fourth goal - the different answers based on the kind of school - was not considered conclusive.
