Summary

This report summarizes survey data on state policies and procedures related to the provision of services to students with Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). Information was received from 41 states and 3 non-state jurisdictions in the fall of 1998. Findings indicate: (1) at least 21 states have written policies or guidelines for the education of students with AD/HD; (2) 30 of the states did not include AD/HD within the definition of a specific category of disability; (3) 31 of the 44 states have no written policy on individual identification or assessment of AD/HD; (4) none of the responding states disaggregate data on the number of students with AD/HD from other disability categories; (5) although none of the responding states reported a specific policy regarding medication of students with AD/HD, 9 states referred to a general medication policy or health care procedure on this issue; and (6) the greatest challenges for local education agencies related to AD/HD were identified as: provision of educational services in the general education environment and determining eligibility under different federal laws.
