Motivation in education
The purpose of this study was to determine whether an arts integrated enrichment curriculum would have a greater increase on achievement over a direct instruction curriculum for students with ADHD. The findings showed higher achievement when using the enrichment curriculum than when the direct method was utilized. This indicates that for students with ADHD providing them with the opportunity to interact more the subject matter produced higher achievement. Research in the area of attention and achievement in ADHD students should continue given that there are more students diagnosed with ADHD each year and that classroom teachers are faced with the task of engaging each student and helping him/her reach his/her full academic potential.
