Puranik Ravindra Premchand

Abstract: Parenting is something that no-one person is an expert and that no expert can tell you how to do it. If a person's child is an absolute angel, does nothing wrong, and gets straight A's; parenting still is difficult. When a child has a disorder such as ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactive disorder), the child needs much more from the parent than most parents bargain for. Parenting roles for a child with ADHD change greatly. ADHD is a common childhood disorder affecting approximately 5% of primary school-going children. The disorder is characterised by severe difficulties in one or more of three areas; inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Considering that, school teachers are often the first to notice behavioural difficulties in children, it is surprising that relatively little research has been undertaken with teachers. Based on objectives of the study, knowledge questionnaire consists of 30 items and attitude questionnaire tool consists of 15 items on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were prepared. Non experimental descriptive research approach & Convenient sampling technique was used. Results: out of 60 school teachers who were teaching in schools (1st standard to 5th standard) in a selected schoolknowledge and attitude relation was assessed by various statistical test and the association between the knowledge and attitude scores with selected demographic variables was computed by using x2 statistics. The result showed that there is positive relation of knowledge and attitude scores on ADHD.
