Study for Children and Teens With Down Syndrome

Why are we doing this research?

Cincinnati Children’s is conducting a research study to identify behavioral, cognitive, academic and functional impairments that differentiate children and teens with Down syndrome from children and teens with Down syndrome and ADHD.

Who can participate?

Children and teens 6 to 17 years old with Down syndrome may be eligible to participate.

Conditions

  • Down Syndrome

What will happen in the study?

This study includes one study visit that will last 60 to 90 minutes. The visit involves the completion of:

  • Participant cognitive and behavioral assessments
  • Parent/caregiver forms and one parent interview
  • Teacher report forms

You will be given a consent form that thoroughly explains all of the details of the study. A member of the study staff will review the consent form with you and will be sure that all of your questions are answered.

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

Families will receive a comprehensive assessment, including intelligence, behavioral and cognitive assessments at no charge. Overall, the information learned from this study may help children with Down syndrome and ADHD, and it may also help doctors with their diagnostic and treatment efforts in the future.

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