Abstract

Background: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most pervasive disorder of childhood

affecting about 3% to 5%. Early identification and intervention of this problem are very important to address

issues at early age. Materials and method: Quantitative approach and quasi experimental non equivalent

control group pretest-posttest design was used. Total 100 primary school teachers (54 in experimental group

and 46 in comparison group) were recruited by convenience sampling technique. Tools in the study were

selected variables, structured knowledge questionnaire and structured attitude scale. Results: Mean post-test

knowledge score (t= 5.24, p=0.00) and mean posttest attitude score (t=4.10, p=0.00) was higher than mean

pretest knowledge and attitude score in experimental group. There was a weak positive correlation (r=0.282)

in experimental and a moderate positive correlation (r=0.406) in comparison group. There was no significant

association of knowledge except gender (p=0.03) and teaching experience (p=0.04) in experimental group

and except religion (p=0.03) in comparison group. There was no significant association of attitude in

experimental group and except age (p=0.03) in comparison group. Regression shows teaching experience

having predictability, R= 30.10% (0.301) on knowledge and qualification having predictability on attitude,

R= 34.20% (0.342) in experimental group. In comparison group, number of children having predictability,

R= 32.70% (0.327) on attitude. It was concluded that Video based teaching was effective to improve the

knowledge and attitude regarding ADHD of children.
