Apparently the folks at the University of Maryland are very interested in learning more about parenting kids with ADHD.
After publishing the article on Erica’s research study about moms of kids with ADHD, I heard from her colleague Abigail Mintz who is doing a similar study on dads who have ADD kids between the ages of 5 and 12.
Here is Abigail’s information:
University of Maryland at College Park is conducting a research study to learn more about fathers who have children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) so that we can eventually use this knowledge to improve treatment for families of children with ADHD. If you are the biological father of a 5 – 12 year old child with ADHD or undiagnosed significant attention/disruptive behavior problems, you may be eligible for this study.
Your participation in this study would consist of completing online questionnaires which will take approximately 30 minutes. You will be asked questions about your parenting, your own behavior and emotions, and your child’s behavior.
As compensation for your participation, you will be entered into a drawing with a 1 in 50 chance of receiving a $50 Amazon gift certificate.
If you are interested, please follow the link below to the study. This link will direct you to all informed consent documents and the study.

Once again, please pass this information on to anyone who might be interested. The more research that is done, the better all of our lives can be.
