I'm a graduate student in clinical psychology at Loyola University in Chicago. I specialize in assessment and therapy with kids and teens with a variety of difficulties - and I see LOTS of ADHD. I also have a younger brother who was diagnosed with ADHD, Inattentive Subtype. I chose to study ADHD in my dissertation project, focusing on strengths and weaknesses of kids with ADD/ADHD. I'm looking for parents of kids with ADD/ADHD between the ages of 6 and 12 to complete some questionnaires for my study. It's about a 30 minute time investment, and in return, I'll send you a newsletter with the final results of the study and of other recent research on ADHD. All responses will be kept absolutely confidential and will be used only for the purpose of this study, which has been officially approved by the Loyola University Institutional Review Board and the Department of Psychology. Research is so important to those of us on the "front lines" of treating kids - it helps guide us toward more and more effective treatments. I hope that my study will contribute to that goal. If you're willing to consider participating, or want to know more, please check out my web site at http://adhdresearchproject.homestead.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
