Study for Children With ADHD and/or Attention Problems

Why are we doing this research?

Cincinnati Children’s is conducting a research study, sometimes known as a clinical trial or clinical study, to learn more about how children with ADHD differ from children without ADHD, in their cognitive and sleep functioning. 

Who can participate?

Children 8 to 12 years old with ADHD and/or who have problems with attention may be eligible to participate.

  • ADD - ADHD

What will happen in the study?

Your child will be in this study for up to 3 months. It includes 2 study visits and 1 or 2 optional study visits.

If interested in having your child participate, a member of the study staff will tell you about all the procedures that will happen during the study visits. A member of the study staff will also review the study consent form with you and be sure that all of your questions are answered. 

What are the good things that can happen from this research?

Your child may receive no direct benefit from participating in this study. However, your and your child’s participation in this study may help us learn more about children with attention difficulties. Also, as part of this research study, you will receive results from a mental health evaluation and intelligence testing at no charge.

The risks from participation in this study are minimal.

Possible risks and discomforts will be discussed with parents or guardians interested in learning more about the study.
