ADHD Only Research Study In Sydney: You Can Participate For Free

>> Tuesday, May 4, 2010

For those in Australia, there is a participation opportunity for those who are parents of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The Sydney University Faculty of Health Sciences are looking for participants for a play- based intervention program that assists children with ADHD to help develop their social interactions with others. This will also help them in learning how to build friendships.

"In a previous study involving 350 children, we discovered that the play of children with ADHD differed from that of their peers," says Professor Anita Bundy.

The program takes seven week including assessment of social language, play skills, and play-based intervention. They are seeking children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, having a confirmed diagnosis of ADHD. Children can participate in the program if they have conditions commonly occurring with ADHD (learning disorders and oppositional defiant disorder) provided ADHD is the primary diagnosis.

Children will not be able to participate if they have other major developmental or psychiatric disorders (autism, intellectual disability, and cerebral palsy). Participants will be required to have functional English skills to participate. The program is free and you can learn more about the ADHD only play-based intervention study in Sydney, Australia from The Medical News.
