Descrizione sintetica
  • The WHAAM project is aimed to improve teacher and parent skills in the observation of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder subjects (aged 7-18) and to create an innovative ICT environment to support caregivers to recognize and manipulate trigger events and/or the consequences that are reinforcing and maintaining the undesirable behaviors, according to cognitive-behavioral strategies. The choice to focus on parent and teacher training arose from an analysis of many studies on ADHD that have highlighted the need to move school and family from helpless victim mode to observer mode. In order to systematize and simplify the functional analysis of problematic behaviors, the WHAAM project will exploit the potential of ICTs developing a web application aimed to gather behavioral data, define behavior intervention plans and evaluate the efficacy of the treatment. The kick-off meeting offers an opportunity for school teachers, parents, caregivers and members of local ADHD associations to be informed about the project activities and the expected outcomes. Members of project partnership and experts in the ADHD disorder will introduce the aims and activities of the project, the new approaches and research advances in behavioral monitoring especially in school setting and with the use of information technologies.

  • The main goal of the WHAAM project is to contribute to fostering competitiveness and convergence, in line with the Euro Plus Pact (EUCO 10.1.11 Rev.1). It is focused on training teachers, involved with ADHD students, to practise monitoring techniques in the context of the CB approach. This training course may be deemed as part of the LLL process of teachers and adults, also with a relevant spillover effect on the lives of the ADHD pupils. Moreover, the project seeks to improve the home-school collaboration in the field of ADHD, promote a stronger awareness of the importance of creating a skilled social network around ADHD pupils and diffuse the use of CB monitoring as the best way to collect data and to plan effective and shared interventions. To accomplish these goals, the project aims to construct a common framework involving educational research centres and some important public and private agencies engaged in the sector of learning and training. This action could increase the awareness of these agencies regarding the possible impact of the technology in the future of ADHD monitoring. To obtain this result it is important to consider the international research results but also to take into account the different local contexts, both at national and regional level. All these actions are aimed at harmonizing the policies and spreading good practices in CB monitoring, and support the idea that ICT can play an important role in making the multimodal approach a time-efficient strategy for managing students with ADHD, without singling out or stigmatizing the child. In particular, the project intends to explore the opportunity offered by the mobile devices as tools to allow monitoring in real life situations, timely and easily. The project is oriented to create the conditions for efficient and effective growth in teachers and parents' abilities in CB monitoring, assuming that this benefits all pupils, not just the pupil with ADHD. Classwide interventions can have a positive effect on the learning and behavioural difficulties frequently associated with ADHD. (literal)
