Erin Caton Custadio, Ed.D. (Johnson & Wales University) has successfully defended her doctoral dissertation, Investigating Teacher Trait Emotional Intelligence and Attitudes Toward the Social and Emotional Challenges of Students With ADHD: A Q-methodology Study of Vital Teacher Disposition Elements. The results of this multi-phase mixed-methods study revealed that teachers with the lowest levels of the trait Emotional Intelligence were also the least tolerant of the social and emotional challenges of students with ADHD. To address these matters, Custadio recently founded A New Narrative: Emotionally Conscious Teaching, an organization dedicated to developing the Emotional Intelligence of educators, while preparing them to understand the development of neurodiverse students better.
