Although numerous studies have analyzed organizational interventions with use with children with ADHD, minimal research has evaluated the impact of teaching universal organizational skills, class wide, to elementary aged students. This study investigated the impact of teaching universal organizational skills class wide to a cohort of Grade 3, 4, and 5 general education students. The sample consists of approximately 50 mixed gender students in Grade 3, 4, 5 from a small rural elementary school in British Columbia, Canada. The current study employed a concurrent, multiple baseline design. Results of the study found that organizational skills training increased the three organizational skills for both classrooms. The results suggest that organizational skills training, specifically designed for students with ADHD and in one to one settings, could be successfully adapted and implemented with typically developing children in a classwide setting.
