thesis / dissertation description
The present study examines the use of story maps to improve reading comprehension skills of six fourth grade students diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Previous research has indicated story maps aid several of the reading deficits often associated with ADHD, yet limited research has investigated whether story mapping increases comprehension skills for this population. The present study also examines whether the effects of story mapping will be maintained after the intervention is discontinued. The participants' comprehension levels were evaluated using DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency and Story Retell measures and the AIMSweb Maze measure. An analysis of the data is expected to reveal that story mapping increases comprehension skills for students with ADHD and that this effect is maintained after the intervention is discontinued. Limitations of the results and implications for future research are discussed.
