Dr. Lee will share her longitudinal ethnographic research with four children with ADHD, discussing how the participating children and their assumed disability can be seen from multiple perspectives.

Dr. Lee is an associate professor and early childhood education program coordinator, at the University of Georgia. Her talk will draw on her longitudinal ethnographic study conducted with four African-American boys from economically disadvantaged households, who were considered at great risk for being diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by their prekindergarten and kindergarten teachers. Presenting data collected from both video-recorded observations of these children in their public prekindergarten and kindergarten classrooms and audio-recorded interviews with their teachers, Lee will discuss how these children and their assumed disability can be seen from multiple perspectives.

Lee has a B.A. and M.A. from Ewha Women’s University, Seoul, Korea, and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, all in early childhood education. The presentation is sponsored the Disability Studies Student Group, the Diversity and Community Enhancement Committee in College of Education, the University Park Allocation Committee, Adaptive Technology and Services in the University Libraries and the Rock Ethics Institute.

This event is being sponsored by Penn State University Libraries Adaptive Technology and Services.
