As stated recently on our blog one advantage of being a support group is that we have strength in numbers. Recently, we were contacted by trainee Clinical Psychologist, Justin Savage from Birmingham University wishing to draw on our expertise around ADHD. He came along to our last support meeting to talk about the research he is conducting which aims to discover whether there is a link between the way parents and children perceive ADHD, the way they deal with it and how this affects them. He is seeking participants from as wide an area as possible to enable him to do this research. It involves parent/carer and children/young people completing a set of questionnaires exploring thoughts and feelings about ADHD. All completed questionnaire sets will be rewarded with entry into a prize draw once they have been received.
Eventually we should all get sight of the research findings and recommendations. Hence it promises to be a worthy cause and should benefit others with ADHD.
