Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder; Reading (Elementary); Qualitative Reading Inventory


This research case study provided reading interventions that focused on increasing oral reading fluency. This case study was designed for a below-level 5th grade student attending a private, urban, Midwestern school who was identified as having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A pretest and posttest were administered using the Qualitative Reading Inventory 5th Edition (QRI-5) (Leslie and Caldwell 2011). The intervention was conducted over 15 sessions that lasted 35 minutes. The primary dependent variable used during this case study was the correct words read per minute (CWPM). The student increased his oral reading fluency rate as a result of this reading intervention.
