Study on the Evaluation of the ADHD 101 Program for Parents of Children Recently Diagnosed with ADHD


Participate in our study



Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)is a health condition often seen in pediatric primary care settings. It affects 6-7% of children worldwide. For different reasons, many families do not receive the necessary treatments of ADHD. This puts children at risk of having poor health outcomes. To prevent this problem, colleagues at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have developed the ADHD Bootcamp program a few years ago. This program is called “ADHD 101” in Canada.


ADHD 101 Program

The objectives of the ADHD 101 program are: a) To help parents gain support from other parents who are in the same situation as them; b) To learn more about ADHD; and c) To learn how parents can take charge of their child’s ADHD to help him/her in the long run.


Study Purpose

Dr. Normand wants to evaluate if the ADHD 101 program is feasible, acceptable, and potentially useful according to parents from Canada’s National Capital Region. Dr. Normand hopes that this information will help develop and make accessible new effective services for children with ADHD. 


Who can Participate?

Parents of 5-11 year-old children with a diagnosis of ADHD from a licensed health care provider in the last 12 months(e.g., from afamily doctor, pediatrician, psychiatrist, psychologist, neuropsychologist, etc.) are invited to participate in the study.


Project Description 

If a parent decides to participate in this research project, he/she will receive a compensation of $20 for his/her participation in the screening assessment and another $20 for his/her participation in the baseline assessment. The parent will then be able to participate at no cost in the parental intervention program sessions with 6-7 other parents. The four sessions of the parental intervention program will be leaded by a psychologist and will be held in a private room at Montfort Hospital or at the Université du Québec en Outaouais based on parents’ preferences at a convenient time for them.He/she will receive a $20 compensation for his/her participation in the assessment immediately after the ADHD 101. Finally, he/she will receive a $20 compensation for his/her participation in the 6-month follow-up assessment. 


Significance of the Project

We hope the information found in this study will make it possible to develop and offer effective new services for children with ADHD.
