Children's peer relationships in elementary school are important to promote their academic learning and their social-emotional development. Many children with or at risk for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have difficulty being accepted and getting along with their classroom peers. This study tested a classroom intervention that aimed to help improve the peer relationships of elementary school age children, with a particular focus on children with or at risk for ADHD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transmembrane sensor receptor proteins that are central components of the chemotactic systems of a number of motile bacterial species which include ESCHERICHIA COLI and SALMONELLA TYPHIMURIUM. Methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins derive their name from a sensory adaptation process which involves methylation at several glutamyl residues in their cytoplasmic domain. Methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins trigger chemotactic responses across spatial chemical gradients, causing organisms to move either toward favorable stimuli or away from toxic ones.
