Initiative Description: A coaching intervention that incorporated self-monitoring, goal-setting, and systematic fading on the homework completion and accuracy of three high-school students diagnosed with AD/HD. The students met with the coach daily for 10–15 min until s/he achieved his or her long-term goals. Daily sessions occurred at the same time every day; homeroom, before school, and study hall.
Study Results: Coaching led to improvements in homework completion and goal setting. Performance was maintained during fading and post-treatment for the two students for whom it was examined.
