dc.description.abstract This study examined the relationship between children diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) and the occurrence of frequent childhood ear infections. Other topics examined were whether parents engaged in preventative measures to reduce the risk that their child would develop ear infections, the impact of AD/HD on the child and the family, and if interventions controlled or reduced the symptoms of AD/HD. Utilizing historical and case study methodology, this study showed a relationship between frequent childhood ear infections and AD/HD. Additionally, parents did not intentionally use preventative measures to reduce the risk that their child would develop ear infections. Interventions to control the symptoms of AD/HD were utilized but did not appear to make a significant difference as children with AD/HD continued to present significant challenges for family members and teachers. The findings from this study are important. Parents should utilize early interventions and public schools should revise guidelines regarding hearing screenings as well as provide training on AD/HD for school personnel. Parents should participate in support groups and children who have AD/HD should have access to specialized school services and interventions. en
