Sample text

Douglas emphasized that self-regulation influences “the amount of organized, effortful attention that is deployed throughout all stages of information processing, including stimulus evaluation, response decision, and response execution” (p. 66). Currently, the most widely recognized model of ADHD as executive function impairment is that proposed by Russell Barkley (1997, 2006). His model is quite similar to Brown’s model, shown above, except for three important aspects. First, Barkley describes his model as applying only to the combined type of ADHD, to individuals whose ADHD impairments include hyperactivity and impulsivity, not to those with predominantly inattentive type.

78). Pennington (1991) extended this view of ADHD symptoms as situationally variable. He observed that those with ADHD tend to vary in their task performance depending on task conditions. 94). Brown (2005a) has elaborated on situational variability of ADHD symptoms with multiple case examples over all age levels. From extensive clinical observations he has found that virtually all persons diagnosed with ADHD have a few domains of activity in which they demonstrate none of the executive function impairments that they suffer in most other situations.

25. Behavior modification and other psychosocial methods are just as effective for treating executive function impairments of ADHD as are medications. Studies of the effectiveness of psychosocial methods such as behavior modification and cognitive-behavioral therapy versus medication alone indicate that medication treatment seems to be the critical ingredient for treating most patients with ADHD. Training parents and teachers of young children with ADHD in operant conditioning techniques has been shown to reduce disruptive behavior and to increase attention to tasks.
