Focus of Paper: I identified 12 studies for the Chapter II Literature review. Given the broad range of the is topic, I chose to narrow it by focusing mainly on the inattention form of ADHD and elementary students in grades Kindergarten through sixth grade. The studies in Chapter II were conducted in both educational and clinical settings. The Academic Search Premier and Google Scholar database I used to locate studies focus on a variety of keywords and keyword combinations: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Special Education, inattention, elementary, teaching strategies, learning strategies, therapy ball, stability ball, multimodal therapy, self-monitoring. To locate studies, I also conducted a search of The American Journal of Occupational Therapy.
