Title: ADD and deafness: a qualitative study of professionals with background in ADD and deafness
Author: DiDonna, Cynthia
Abstract: This qualitative research project was designed to gather information poorly understood topic: ADD and deafness. The information came from 5 detailed interviews with professionals who have experience with ADD deaf students. The interview protocol included parts: (a) questions about the problems and issues involved in identifying deaf students who have ADD, (b) possible protocols and instruments useful for diagnosing ADD in deaf students, and (c) possible accommodations and strategies for deaf students with ADD. The results indicated 4 primary themes: possible roles of interpreters, language issues, views of medication, and accommodation strategies. Future research should be directed towards standardizing ADD test instruments deaf students, and toward developing specific training methods for interpreters/teachers with respect to managing ADD deaf students.
