This descriptive, quantitative study utilized a cross-sectional survey to determine if there was a relationship between teacher knowledge of ADHD and their perception of students with the label, and it investigated the potential difference between general education and special education teachers. A three-part survey will be disseminated to participants. This includes demographic information, true-false questions about ADHD, and vignettes with a Likert scale measure of perception of the events described. A Pearson correlation may be used to analyze the degree of relationship between the level of teacher knowledge about ADHD and their perception of students with the label. T-tests were used to determine the significance in the vignette rating differences.
