Researchers at FIU’s Center for Children and Families (CCF) have been awarded a $3.8 million grant by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) to find effective interventions for English Language Learners (ELLs) at risk for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Across the United States, approximately 10 percent of students are ELLs – a rapidly growing group in public schools. In Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), the fourth largest public school district in the nation, that figure is more than double at 24 percent.
