The purpose of this study was to ascertain the attitudes and perceptions of teachers toward Attention Deficit Disordered children. A survey was conducted of a select group of teachers and one administrator in District #129 in Aurora, Illinois. It suggests a need for some type of policy or guidelines when dealing with the ADD child. Respondents'' perceptions were compiled and summarized. This summary focuses on the desire to gain an awareness of this complex disorder. The knowledge of the respondents varied greatly according to their experience with this disorder. Current literature on Attention Deficit Disorders (with and without hyperactivity) was reviewed to establish the context for this study.
