A Study to Assess the Knowledge and Attitude regarding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder among Primary School Teachers Working in Selected Primary Schools of Kolkata

Manju SK

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most widely studied neuro-developmental disorders in children. The behaviours associated with ADHD may be first observed by teachers and they play a pivotal role in the recognition, referral and treatment of ADHD. The objectives of the present study were (i) to assess the knowledge and attitude of primary school teachers regarding ADHD (ii) to associate the knowledge and attitude with selected demographic variables and (iii) to correlate knowledge and attitude. A cross sectional descriptive research design with survey approach was used among 110 primary school teachers selected from seven schools of Kolkata. A semi structured questionnaire was developed for the study and non probability purposive sampling technique was used. One way ANOVA, Chi square and correlation coefficient tests were used for statistical analysis. Results revealed that more than half (65.5 %) of the primary school teachers had only average knowledge about ADHD where as maximum (87.3 %) of the subjects had positive attitude. There was no significant association of their age, professional qualification, teaching experience and marital status with their knowledge and attitude. There was no significant relationship (r=0.124) between their knowledge and attitude. Study concluded that teachers need to be educated further regarding ADHD.
