Social and academic skills are required for students to function successfully in school environments. Unfortunately, students diagnosed with disruptive behavioral disorders such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder (CD), and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) may not possess the necessary self-regulation skills that contribute to success in school environments (American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2013). Students with these chronic disorders often have difficulty completing school-related tasks and interacting appropriately with peers and adults. As a result, a student’s school performance is characterized by underachievement, disciplinary problems, and poor attendance (Reid, Trout, & Schartz, 2005).
