Abstract

American school systems struggle to provide effective resources to help aid elementary school ADHD students. Using a qualitative Oral History methodology, an interview was conducted with my paternal grandmother. She has had ADHD her whole life and eventually became a school psychologist who worked to diagnose young students who were having difficulties in school. The interview questions were centered around her experiences growing up with ADHD and then later becoming a school psychologist, which revealed that individualized attention, helpful coping mechanisms, and a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment would help schools bolster the education of students with ADHD.
