Research project: Assessing the impact of children with ADHD on the health and well-being of their families

Currently Active: 

The University of Southampton is one of the sites involved in this national multi-centre study led by Sheffield University.

Nationally the study aims to recruit 1000 families with at least one child between 6-18 that has ADHD. All family members will be asked to complete various booklets containing questions about their health, life satisfaction and well-being. In addition, data on severity and treatment of ADHD will be gathered.

The aim of the study is to assess the impact of ADHD on the family in
health economic terms and the results may be used to provide a basis for
comparisons between treatments.
