Table 2.1 (continued)

Topic./Purpose Interpretations Implications
12. Deficiencies in zinc
and essential fatty
acid associated with
AD/HD
Male and female subjects
Lower levels of zinc and
essential fatty acid in
AD/HD group
Children with zinc
deficiencies typically do
not respond to
amphetamine treatment
for AD/HD. If a student
is not responding to
medication (Ritalin/
Cylert) it may be due to
a zinc deficiency and the
teacher should
communicate this to the
child's physician.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Studies
13. Executive function
and brain
abnormalities
Less than normal
asymmetry and brain
volume in AD/HD
subjects
Awareness of role
executive function plays
in classroom performance
(impulsivity,
organization, and study
skills)
Male subjects only
14. Brain differences
associated with
AD/HD
Subjects with AD/HD
had smaller brain size
and differences in
asymmetry
Awareness of a
physiological basis for
AD/HD; enhanced
communication with
parents
Male subjects only
Gender Differences
15. Meta-analysis of
gender and AD/HD
· Limited number of
studies
· Girls showed greater
intellectual
impairment
· Boys greater
behavioral problems
· Teachers should be
aware of gender
differences in AD/HD
· Do not overgeneralize
these findings as more
research is needed
