  • PMD: 2,7

  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn the foundations of conjoint behavioral consultation.
  2. understand the need for longitudinal treatment for students with ADHD.
  3. introduce the CBC-XR Model to support students across grade-level transitions.


Students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) experience enduring difficulties in academic, behavior, and social domains. Few studies have addressed long-term behavioral treatment across the school and home settings for students with ADHD. This study utilized conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) to facilitate the grade-level transition of a student with ADHD. Results suggest that CBC effectively maintained behavioral gains across a grade-level transition. Additionally, CBC was both feasibly implemented and acceptable to parents and teachers.
