Does your child talk excessively? Make careless errors in schoolwork? Have trouble concentrating? If so, your child may be suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and could be eligible to participate in a UCLA research study.
UCLA researchers are conducting a study to evaluate children between the ages of 7 and 14 for ADHD, which afflicts up to 7 percent of school-age children.
Volunteers will make three visits to the UCLA ADHD clinic in Westwood, for a total of about 15 hours. Each child will undergo a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation, as well as an MRI brain scan. Participants may be eligible for additional treatment studies.
Families will be compensated up to $175 for participating in the study, which is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. For more information, please call Joni Zuckerbrow-Miller at (310) 295-7667.
