Questions related to ADHD
I have a new concept (from the perspective of industrial design) for an educational piece of furniture, that may help decreasing the behavioral symptoms for the kids with ADHA, offering them better chance to learn.
but I am looking for fund for such project, and research partners from related field such as ( mechanical engineering, mechatronic, medical field) to proceed with the concept and make it real.
I am working on a meta-analysis about executive function in ADHD and I have found that some papers use different measures for the same outcome, for example, they report the mean and SD for Digit Span for working memory and in the same paper they also report the mean and SD for number and letters task for working memory too. My question is ¿How do I decide which measure to use for? or ¿How di I do to take into account both measures? Thanks for your help.
Would you please suggest me articles discussing the effect of prenatal vitamin B12 supplementation and its effect on ADHD among offspring, as i can't find any?
Also, the effect of receiving Rh shot during pregnancy and ADHD among offspring.
¿Cuáles son los beneficios no reconocidos para luchar por una independencia incondicionalmente responsable individualmente para todos (es decir, la anarquía)?
¡Proponer la revolución para la independencia incondicional, incluidos los enfermos mentales, porque nuestros conceptos actuales de enfermedad y el propósito de nuestro sistema legal son defectuosos!
Es esencial para nuestro bienestar individual subjetivo exigir agresivamente un control completo sobre todos los aspectos subjetivamente relevantes de nuestras vidas, p. autorizaciones de trabajo, trabajos, visas, medicamentos recetados, etc. de cada gobierno, médico, ley, juez, policía, policía, parientes, amigos, superiores, militares, etc. en todo el mundo simultáneamente para recuperar el control total sobre un individuo nivel.
Por lo tanto, la autoridad final sobre drogas, empleos, visas, libertad de expresión, actividades comerciales, tratamientos médicos, etc. pertenece a todos, que subjetivamente se sienten afectados negativamente sin ella, en lugar de cualquier tipo de gobierno, aplicación de la ley, profesionales, expertos, médicos, instituciones, etc.
Por ejemplo, cualquier paciente que necesite estimulantes para el TDAH en los EE. UU. También los necesita en cualquier otro país, independientemente de sus leyes.
La gente como yo necesita un propósito en la vida para mantenerse con vida. Un trabajo significativo me daría un propósito tan esencial para la vida sin el cual ya no puedo seguir con vida por mucho más tiempo. En consecuencia, ningún gobierno tiene ningún derecho legítimo de determinar quién está permitido y quién tiene prohibido trabajar en un país en particular.
Solo dos personas son lo suficientemente poderosas como para dominar a cualquier gobierno del mundo. Una persona debe ocultar en secreto a un inmigrante ilegal bajo su identificación fiscal. Esto se puede hacer fácilmente configurando perfiles independientes, p. en www.indeed.com, www.guru.com, www.upwork.com, etc.
Además, esta forma de ocultar a los inmigrantes ilegales permitiéndoles trabajar sin autorización de trabajo hace posible el desarrollo gradual e indetectable de los monopolios del mercado económico, e incluso probable, con el tiempo.
Esto es esencial para gradualmente ser indetectable y dominar simultáneamente a todas las autoridades actuales en todo el mundo con el fin de transferir el poder absoluto absoluto y el control completo sobre todos los aspectos relevantes de la vida a todos, que subjetivamente sienten que su propia vida estaría en riesgo o afectada negativamente de lo contrario. Por lo tanto, todos deben esforzarse por quitarle cualquier autoridad a alguien que afecte negativamente cualquier aspecto relevante de la vida, p. medicamentos recetados, tratamientos médicos, trabajos, residencia, actividades sociales y políticas, libertad ilimitada de expresión y expresión, etc.
Todos los que luchan con cualquier tipo de desafío están automáticamente más calificados para determinar la mejor manera de superar su desafío individual que cualquier otra persona. Los amigos pueden ayudar escuchando, entendiendo y haciendo sugerencias, pero la solución final a cualquier problema individual en particular siempre debe estar bajo el control total de aquellos afectados negativamente por él. No debe haber tabú para responder a problemas, incluido el suicidio.
No hay autoridades, gobiernos, jueces, médicos, policías, agentes del orden, médicos, padres, amigos, profesionales, expertos, etc. que puedan estar más calificados para tomar la determinación final sobre responder a un problema en particular que la persona en particular, que está luchando subjetivamente con sus consecuencias adversas directamente!
Esto parece ser inesperadamente difícil para cualquiera de comprender y estar de acuerdo. Desafortunadamente, eso no lo hace menos cierto si realmente se aplica subjetivamente a la vida de alguien, que subjetivamente se siente de esta manera, ¡por cualquier razón o sin razón alguna!
Por lo tanto, me refiero a este tipo de revolución para la independencia responsable incondicional para todos a la "Revolución Anarquista Responsable".
Honestamente, todavía no puedo entender la razón por la cual mi propia vida es obviamente mucho menos importante que mi estatus migratorio y las leyes que rigen su determinación.
En lugar de orientarnos a procedimientos y reglas, debemos actuar orientados a objetivos para reducir el riesgo creciente de suicidio.
¿Solo los pacientes suicidas pueden entender esto? ________________________________________ Esta respuesta anterior refleja la opinión personal de Thomas Hahn, PhD Identificación de Skype: TFH002 Correo electrónico: CIA101FBI@gmail.com Teléfono Google Voice + 1 (501) 301 4890 Teléfono inteligente Android: + 1 (571) 839 0727 Perfil de Facebook: Thomas F Hahn Manija de Twitter: Thomas Friedbert Hahn @FriedbertHahn Perfil en www.Researchgate.net: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/309537991_Remote_Access_Programs_to_Better_Integrate_Individuals_with_Disabilities https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/2982142.2982182S

What are the generally unrecognized benefits to strive for complete unconditional individually responsible independence for all (i.e. anarchy)?
Proposing the revolution for unconditional independence, including the mentally ill, because our current concepts of illness and the purpose of our legal system are flawed!
It is essential for our subjective individual well-being to aggressively demand complete control over all subjectively relevant aspects of our lives, e.g. work authorizations, jobs, visas, prescription medications,, etc. from every government, physician, law, judge, police, law enforcement, relatives, friends, superiors, military, etc. everywhere in the world simultaneously to regain full control on an individual level.
Hence, the final authority over drugs, jobs, visas, freedom of speech, commercial activities, medical treatments, etc. belongs to everyone, who subjectively feels adversely affected without it, instead of any kind of government, law enforcement, professionals, experts, physicians, institutions, etc.
For example, any patient needing ADHD stimulants in the USA also needs them in any other country regardless of its laws.
People like me need a purpose in life to stay alive. A meaningful job would give me such life-essential purpose without which I can no longer stay alive for much longer. Consequently, no government has any legitimate right to determine who is allowed and who is forbidden to work in any particular country.
Two people alone are powerful enough to overpower any government in the world. One person must secretly hide an illegal immigrant under his/her tax ID. This can easily be done by setting up freelancer profiles, e.g. at www.indeed.com, www.guru.com, www.upwork.com, etc.
Furthermore, this way of hiding illegal immigrants by allowing them to work without work authorization makes the gradual secret undetectable development of economic market monopolies possible, and even likely, over time.
This is essential for gradually undetectable simultaneously overpower all current authorities worldwide in order to transfer the full absolute power and complete control over all relevant aspects of life to everyone, who subjectively feels that his/her own life would be at risk or adversely affected otherwise. Hence, everyone should strive to take away any authority from anybody adversely affecting any relevant aspects of life, e.g. prescription drugs, medical treatments, jobs, residence, social and political activities, unlimited freedom of speech and expression, etc.
Everyone struggling with any kind of challenge is automatically more qualified to determine the best way for overcoming his/her individual challenge than anybody else. Friends can help by listening, understanding and making suggestions, but the final solution to any particular individual problem must always be under the complete control of those adversely affected by it. There must be no taboo in responding to problems including committing suicide.
No authorities, governments, judges, physicians, policemen, law enforcement, physicians, parents, friends, professionals, experts, etc. can ever be more qualified to make the final determination about responding any particular problem than the particular individual, who is subjectively struggling with its adverse consequences directly!
This seems to be unexpectedly difficult for anybody to comprehend and agree with. Unfortunately, that does not make it any less true if it really subjectively applies to the lives of anybody, who subjectively feels this way, for whatever reason or no reason at all!
Hence, I refer to this kind of revolution for responsible unconditional independence for all to the "Responsible Anarchistic Revolution".
Honestly, I still cannot understand the reason why my own life is obviously much less important than my immigration status and the laws governing its determination.
Instead of procedure and rule oriented we must act goal oriented to lower the rising suicide risk.
Can only suicidal patients understand this?

Adult ADHD is an organic neuropsychiatric disorder. Nearly 50 to 60 % of ADHD children suffer from Adult ADHD symptoms.
It is recently researched that prevalence of Adult ADHD is rising steeply.
Adult ADHD are a potentially significant threat to one and all. Because they are impulsive, unpredictable, unstoppable, mostly unaware of their mistakes or tendency of committing repeated errors and much more. They are very much accident prone due to fast driving tendency.
So I feel mist of the doctors other than psychiatrist ought to be aware of some details of Adult ADHD.
So floated this question to generate awareness.
Requesting all readers to give feedback or write their thoughts on the subject.
I am beginning an experiment assessing timing-related behavior in adults with ADHD and the perceptual measures I plan to use are adaptive, and determine perceptual thresholds using standard adaptive algorithm procedures (e.g. staircase method). However, I'm concerned about the inevitable impact of attentional lapses on thresholds. I am interested in suggestions for how best to tune the staircase parameters and/or suggestions for other adaptive algorithms that may be more resilient to lapses of attention. Any thoughts?
Some patients functioned, compensated, struggled with this "mixed up brain circuitry" for years. Then when they got it all straightened out, they spent enough time with a functioning brain to completely forget how to compensate for the fog. So technically, yes, it can impair your ability to work, even a job you have known and done for years.
What do you know about it?
According to genetic population studies, there are differences in the frequency of different alleles of so-called ADHD genes (or "migration genes"), such as the DRD4 allele, depending on how long people have migrated in the historic past (see e.g. Chen et al, 1999: Population Migration and the Variation of Dopamine D4 Receptor (DRD4) Allele Frequencies Around the Globe). It seems like alleles, which alter the regulation of dopamine and other neurotransmitters in such way that the carrier has a tendency towards novelty-seeking and hyperactivity, tend to be more common in migrating populations than in sedentary populations. This sounds logic and not very surprising. But what about modern migration patterns and gene alleles?
The reason for my questions is that, although a large part of the occurrence of social problems and criminality (and other norm-breaking behaviour) in immigrant populations in e.g. Sweden can be explained by socio-economic factors, also after correction for such factors there is a higher incidence of violence, crime and social problems in immigrant populations than in more sedentary populations. ADHD is a known risk factor for impulsive and norm-breaking behaviour (at least if the behavioural needs of persons with ADHD are not met by the society). So I am curious about if there might be genetic differences which might need childhood/school interventions in order to give better chances for success in life for individuals, as well as a generally more stable and safe situation for all inhabitants in socially vulnerable areas.
As far as I have understood, there are several possible interventions those might be useful to counteract norm-breaking behaviour among childdren, and thus prevent such behaviour among adolescents and adults. But with very limited resources, we need to identify both which kinds of interventions would be most cost-efficient, and also in which schools and for which groups and individuals it would give the best long-term rewarding effect to make interventions.
I realize that this issue might be politically sensitive – but it has nothing to do with races or ethnicity, rather with genetic variations between populations with different migratory patterns – that is, if the migratory behaviour itself (not ethnicity) is influenced by genes, or only by outer factors such as wars, famine, economic problems or political situations. Are people who take the chance to move away genetically similar to people who stay, or are there differences, with respect to gene alleles commonly associated with ADHD? And if there are genetic differences, could this explain parts of the differences in norm-breaking behaviour not explained by socio-economic factors between immigrants and sedentary residents in Western industrialized countries?
Question 1: Is there a genetic difference in so-called ADHD allele frequencies (e.g. DRD4) in immigrants/refugees (e.g. first or second generation) in Western industrialised countries, compared to the populations still remaining in the countries of origin, as well as the long-term sedentary populations in the current countries of residence?
Question 2: Do immigrant populations (e.g. first or second generation) in Western industrialised countries have a higher occurrence of ADHD symptoms than the general sedentary populations in the countries of origin, as well as sedentary populations in the new countries of residence?
Question 3: Which scientifically supported methods for early interventions might be suitable to use in preschools and schools to improve academic and social life success for children with ADHD tendencies and/or ADHD alleles?
Question 4: Which scientifically supported methods (which might differ from those in question 3) for early interventions might be suitable to use in preschools and schools to improve academic and social life success for children in socially vulnerable areas with a high proportion of immigrants?
I would be happy to know your experience about „ratios” in neurofeedback. Only a few of them (Theta /Beta on Cz in ADHD, Frontal Alpha Asymmetry in Depression) are well discussed. On the neurofeedback courses conducted in Poland, there are very many of them, eg: Traumatic experiences: beta1 in T4 higher>2 times in T3 beta2 asymmetry in T3 / T4> 30% Depression, discouragement, lack of motivation: beta1 in T4 50% lower then in T3 Have you ever found similar strict indicators (more then 2 times, less then 30% etc...)? Maybe in book/article, maybe on your course? Give me such examples please!
I am interested in the idea of adding photovoice components to my research. My interests are primarily with youth who commonly have difficulties related to attention and organization (e.g., youth diagnosed with ADHD and ASD), so I suspect that the cameras I would provide should be very inexpensive and easy to use. Any suggestions for models/suppliers? Another option I would consider would be relatively inexpensive tablets with camera functions.
One of my research interest is ADHD. I want to pursue my phd to research in this area. Unfortunately I could not find phd position for that. I want to join a research group which work on ADHD. Is there a professor to like I collaborate with him/her to share my plan for Phd.?
Research concluded that early treatment with stimulant medication has very strong protective effects against the development of serious, ADHD-associated functional complications like mood and anxiety disorders, conduct and oppositional defiant disorder, addictions, driving impairments and academic failure.
What is your clinical experience with pharmacological treatment?
I'm specially interested in atomoxetine and bupropion like alternatives to methylphenidate and dextroamphetamine.
Experts say there's not enough evidence to recommend this action, although a small subset of children may benefit.Most studies of a possible link analyzed blends of additives, not single ingredients, making it difficult to find a culprit.However, here's a list of additives that could aggravate attention problems, although none (with the exception of Yellow No. 5) has been studied alone in humans.
Studies in children with ADHD suggest impairments in social cognitive functions, whereas studies in adults with ADHD are scarce and inconclusive.
Future studies should therefore extend our findings by thoroughly assessing a broader range of social cognitive and neurocognitive functions in adults with clinical ADHD.
Are there any non-medications out there that can help ease the symptoms of add/ADHD that have scientific backing? I ask because I know there's a large community that wants to be medicated but can't because the side effects from Adderall, Vyvanse, etc. Give them a really hard time (headaches, mood swings, insomnia, joint pains, heart palpitations, chest pain, etc)
Anna Ek and Gunilla Isaksson from the Luleå University of Technology wrote and article several years ago regarding how adults diagnosed with ADHD perform everyday activities. Their findings showed that engaging activities was one of the major factors in performing those activities and a major factor in completing them as well.
My question is what engages adults with ADHD to start and complete activities? In other words, how do you make cleaning the house engaging?
I would like to measure parents' fear of addiction when it comes to their decision to adopt stimulant medication in the treatment of the symptoms of ADHD inattentive type.
Does anyone know of quantitative research which has reported on the degree to which children and young people (e.g., anyone under 20yrs) with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are bullied because they have their specific NDD? There is plenty showing that these young people experience more bullying behaviours from their peers, but there seems to be much less (virtually nothing) on whether they are being picked on specifically because they have an NDD. Thanks.
Prevalence rates for substance use disorders among correctional populations are estimated to be in the range of 70 to 90 percent. Controlled substances such as amphetamines have a very high abuse potential, and their use in a population with an already high prevalence of substance use disorders is of concern. Psychiatrists should be reluctant to become unwitting suppliers for people with addictions. On the other hand, recent studies have also demonstrated that the prevalence of ADHD is higher in persons who are substance dependent than among those who are not, and so reason number 10 is not an absolute ban on stimulants but must be considérés.
I have not found many studies about this treatment. It has been approved by FDA based on very preliminary evidence. How much time does FDA take in general to approve a treatment in mental health field?
Methylphenidate Anterior cingulate acts with cortex, norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibition. Bupropion has the same mechanism of action, but moves on the Nucleus Accumbens. How does the combination of methylphenidate and bupropion produce effects in ADHD?
Professional-school student with extensive ACE (child adverse events) history along with severe depression and anxiety diagnosed over previous year, presented with recent severe ADHD (I-Type) diagnosis at age 26.
Documentation confirmed maximum dose step therapy for various Amphetamine-based stimulants was completed but still not found to be fully affective.
Unexpectedly, they are currently prescribed daily 50mg Mydayis (Mixed salts of single-entity amphetamine product) along with 80mg Prozac, and consumming 300-400mg of caffeine.
Due to initial medication-only use producing very minimal stabilizing effects, but found to increase at re-introduction of SSRI and further increase with Caffeine reintroduction.
No adverse effects (cardiac, neuromuscular, neurocognitive) have been reported/measured in 4 months of aforementioned therapeutic combination.
NOTE: Adverse reaction to methylphenidate-based medications were identified early on.
Assessment of (remaining) presenting symptoms seems to overlap with tentatively defined SCT Criteria.
NOTE: Student has never been prescribed Strattera (only presently confirmed SCT-symptom relief medication)
Recent research has shown SCT + ADHD to correlate with much greater impairment in adults, do you think a combination of severe ADHD + SCT may result in required use of excess pharmacotherapy dosages that surpass established safe therapeutic/combination parameters?
To expand on this question - does the work environment of higher ed attract people who have ADHD? Between the semester (or quarter) cycle, the different schedule on most days and the creative nature of research, are these factors that entice adults with ADHD?
I am working on my dissertation for my Doctoral Degree. I am in need of a tested and reliable quantitative instrument that can help look at perceptions, stigmas, or attitudes of adult students with learning disabilities or ADHD.
Quantitative Instrument to measure stigma, attitudes, or perceptions of adult students with disabilities or ADHD?
I'm writing my thesis paper and I'm wondering if there are any recommendations on assessments to measure a child's behaviour and parental stress/well-being (other than PSI). Preferably to be available for public usage. Thank you.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the commonest behavioral disorders in children
I am looking for a valid and reliable instrument that looks at perceptions and attitudes of faculty and professors of higher education towards students with disabilities, specifically Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder.
pleas help me to find research about
Video modeling and people with behavioral and emotional disorders, especially ADHD
Dutch psychiatrist Henricus Cornelius Rumke defined a term "Praecox Gefuhl" meaning Praecox Feeling to indicate the phenomenological experience by the clinician in first few minutes of encounter with a schizophrenic patient, in order to reach a diagnosis. Though the topic is less considered in mainstream psychiatry currently, but many proponents of phenomenological approach favor the existence of such a feeling.
From the similar perspective, are there any other feelings that clinicians experience in encounters with other kinds of patients like personality disorders, or OCD or depression, or anxiety disorders? And for that matter, even childhood disorders too like autism or ADHD. I am looking for some relevant literature as well as personal experiences of clinicians, since I believe that such phenomena have not been reported often. Please share your own experiences too.
P.S. This question arose from a personal experience of a feeling of "being possessed" during the first few minutes of interviewing with a patient diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder having other Cluster B traits. I labeled this feeling, similar to Rumke's as "Gefuhl Besitz", which means "feeling possessed". I have experienced similar respective feelings with depressed/manic/OCD/Borderline personality and other patients too. There have been many repeated experiences of these feelings, quite often, which follow a pattern corresponding to similar diagnoses. That's why I am curious!!
What would it take to get researchers to expand their demographic sections to include a question about neurodiverse conditions?
If you gathered the information on neurodiverse conditions (ADD, ADHD, ASD, Bi-polar) you could 1) publish to a broader audience on the relevance, or lack of relevance, to that growing population 2) confirm that your findings apply to neurodiverse members of the population you studied, 3) compare and contrast your findings between neurodiverse and non-neurodiverse members of the sample.
Demographic question: "Do you likely have a neurodiverse condition, such as ADD, ADHD, ASD, Bi-polar?" Would you ask this in your study?
Your thoughts? Interested in collaboration?

tDCS and tACS are forms of neurostimulation that delivered via electrodes on the head and have therapeutic effects.
I want to know which one has a longer-lasting effect.
I am that person, diagnosed with combined ADHD at the age of 55. Though very bright verbally, I always struggled with math concepts and learning to tell time, remembering times tables, and doing even simple math in my head, so believe I do have the learning disability of dyscalculia, though I have only become aware of its existence.
I had been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and was prescribed the maximum dose of Lexapro and Zoloft and had to search to find a provider who would even consider that I might be having anxiety and depression BECAUSE of my undiagnosed ADHD. I did experience some childhood sexual abuse and parental neglect, so that was what my past providers were "treating".
I am very interested to learn as much as possible and hope to learn from your research of that of others that perhaps you can recommend my following.
I have recently recorded EEG (linked ears reference) from a young man (18 years old) in order to evaluate the possibility of attention deficit hyperactivuty disorder (ADHD) by looking at his theta/beta ratio. While he had a relatively normal theta bata ratio with eyes open (max. between 1.5 and 3 at Fz, at separate eyes-open recordings), he showed a high theta/beta ratio with eyes closed (max. 6.5 at Cz). His theta had a dominant rhythm of 6 Hz with a highest amplitude at Cz. The participant had a jet lag because he travelled from a 7-hour distant time zone area two dyas before, and reported feeling sleepy during the eyes-closed EEG recording, so I initially explained the abundance of theta waves to drowsiness. However, the eyes-closed recording had concurrent alpha waves (peak frequency 10 Hz) distributed occipitally. Since I am no sleep expert, I shall appreciate any input into differentiating between ADHD and sleep onset theta EEG waves.
Due to the lack of studies about medical cannabis and ADHD I'm drafting a study with patients in Germany. This first step is planed as a self-reported treatment (= usage of cannabis) monitoring trial.
Can adult ADHD self-reports substitute clinician ratings?
Which rating scales should be used for self-reported aduld ADHD treatment monitoring? Are there studies about reliability, sensitivity and validity?
This is a scale devleoped by Dr Susan Young to measure the following in adult ADHD and it would be really helpful for the development of current courses my service is offering to adults with ADHD.
ADHD symptom scale
Emotional problem scale
Antisocial behaviour scale
Social functioning scale
Many thanks in advance
I'm particularly interested in novel, original questions that open up new research angles, but also more obvious questions that are clearly under-researched. The goal is to set up a little project for a student with about 2 years time on his hands.
If the EF is linked with brain function where it can control working memory and the cognitive ability. Then, what is the connection between EF and ADHD behaviour? And how EF and ADHD are linked?
I conducted a binary logistic regression with a dependent variable of ADHD/no ADHD. In the first step I added absolute discrepancy scores of two measurements. In the second step I added personality traits (big 5). I interpreted my SPSS results in the result section, but have difficulties now to interpret my findings in the discussion section. Personality traits added information to the model (from 1% to 41% after Nagelkerke's R²).
Can somebody help me to put my findings into words?
I would like to discuss our results (fulfilled questionnaires (BDI, STAI, ADHD, Child Behavior tests) cca 6 years after pediatric heart surgery we have done statistics but I do think that our rejection had reason.
I am an anesthesiologist and intensivist and I feel not really gripped this topic.
For my bachelor thesis in social work with the (temporary) title "Potentials and risks of computer games in children and young people with FASD" I am looking for meaningful studies about the effects of such games in FASD, ADHD or autism. Research so far seems to have focused on specialized games, which is also interesting if it explains the mechanisms of action of the software more precisely so that they can be transferred to normal computer games.
This of course is not a straightforward issue, and certainly less so as there has been some confusion with other more provable learning difficulties.
The notion of ADHD was introduced around the time that laws were passed in Europe and the USA regarding children's regular attendance at school.
Now, school is an artificial environment for all of us, but especially children. Made to sit for many hours each day absorbing usually written or oral material. It was found that some children did not concentrate. In fact they displayed symptoms of distraction and disruption.
Once, children who did the above were described differently. Some were considered more energetic than their classmates. Some were dreamers. These often developed into highly intelligent, creative adults who contributed on a high level to human society. The list of such individuals is endless. Psychiatry unfortunately tends towards reductionism and therefore reduces all behaviour it comes across, and deems unusual, as illness. Its next step tends to be the use of drugs.
Papers I've looked at on the Lancet, the accessible ones from overseas such as from New Zealand, indicate the possibility of social prejudice among professionals in the diagnosis of children as young as 6.
Would appreciate any research available within the field of SEN specifically looking at interventions for children with ASD / Down Syndrome / ADHD / etc. Any information on ABA / The Hanen Prog. / Gemini / SonRise Prog. / Or other interventions/supports not mentioned here.
Can anyone direct me to a good adult ADHD self report measure which is also non-proprietary(free)? I’ve found ASRS, but I’d like to see if I can find some other options. Dimensional measures for hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention would also be helpful. I have access to the Barritt Impulsivneeds scale and the Derryberry Attentional Control Scale, but I’m not sure about those. Any suggestion is appreciated!
Anyone know of studies examining the effect of exercise training on ADHD symptoms (attention, hyperactivity, impulsivity) in youth with ADHD for a meta-analysis? Previous meta-analysis was published by Cerrillo-Urbina et al in 2015, but only identified 8 publications. Any unpublished data available? Dissertations or Masters Theses?
Of particular interest is any connection between the duration of gaming sessions and learning, cognition, memory and mood. Also consider whether or not frequent and extended gaming might exacerbate diagnosed learning disabilities such as dyslexia and ADHD.
I am also interested in gaming in the context of adolescent male social dynamics. See Rosalind Wiseman, Daphne Bavelier and Jane McGonigal.
I am looking for relevant research or literature that will help me with the background reading to a new study I am involved in.
The research question is:
How the student-teacher relationship mediates the link between ADHD and risk-taking behaviour.
The mediating factor could also be teacher monitoring.
Where can I find out what SNPs do in the body? Like if I have a SNP rs117246541 and the genomic position is 16055122 and the genotype is G/G, how can I figure out what that is doing in the human body? I know there are a bunch of websites, but what is the best one, and which can I use to easily find out how this is affecting the subject? I am primarily doing a study on polymorphisms that affect xenobiotic metabolism. My ultimate goal is twofold: (a) to figure out what drugs are going to work or not work for children with ADHD, rather than using the extreme trial and error process that practitioners have no choice but to employ now, and (b) to do the same with MS drugs. I know what the drugs do, and how they are metabolized etc. but there is just so much information here with the sequencing I have done...I am just not a geneticist, I am a chemist, and I am a little out of my element. The metabolomics part, I'm good, the genomics component, I'm still very much a newbie. Please help :)
I have a set of data collected from 21 children with ADHD ( it was even hard to find those 21 participants).I have 1 Independent Variable IV (color scheme) with 3 levels (highlighting, contrast and sharpening). I constructed a questionnaire with 8 items ( 3 items for highlighting, 3 for contrast and 2 for sharpening).I'm using within-subjects one repeated measures ANOVA to find out which of these levels has an effect on the attention ( the dependent variable )of the children .
I'd like to know if one repeated measures ANOVA is the right statistical approach to analyse my data.
One more thing, should I apply Factor Analysis on this "small sample" data. If not, are there any other options?
Hi, I'm developing an application for children with ADHD. In order to assess its usability, I'm going to use System Usability Scale.
There was a recommendation from an expert working with those children, states that those children may not be able to distinguish between Strongly Agree, Agree and Strongly Disagree and Disagree.
Can I make the SUS with 3 points Likert scale?
If so, how can I calculate the scoring?
Any help and recommendation will be highly appreciated.
I am looking to do a research project centered around how individual with ADHD and mental illness are stigmatized, biased, and prejudiced against in higher learning institutions. I feel there is a need to address how behavioral aspects of these diagnosis-es are perceived in a negative light and are used against individuals in classrooms, on social media, learning interfaces, and with policies and procedures, that effect learning and employment outcomes.
I believe that most of it can be addressed through designing instruction with Universal designs of learning. And promoting positive ways individuals with the diagnosis of ADHD, bipolar, PTSD and others can become more than just productive members of society but able to contribute to jobs that are related to education, psychology, technology, math, engineering, and science.
There needs to be a shift in our society that addresses why the norm is actually not as conducive to individuals who have certain strengths and abilities in these areas, but are kept out due to how they are perceived or mis- perceived.
I am a music educator in an inner-city school district. The inordinate amount of children interrupting the educational process in the classroom, due to behavioral issues related to diagnosed ADHD, ODD, ASD, combined with socio-emotional challenges, has inspired me to become a music therapist. I am seeking research to help support my case presentation to a Board of Education. It is my intention to provide MT services within a school district in order to curb or eliminate IEPs (interruptions to the educational process), whereby reducing the related effects of anxiety experienced by educators and students will improve the overall learning environment.
As aripiprazole is a partial D2 agonist, one may hypothesize that it may be an effective agent for the management of psychostimulant-addicted patients. The literature published to date is inconclusive. I am using this in my practice.
I am doing a review paper, and I am looking for nonpublished but acepted papers about theory of mind, executive functiona and ADHD, if you know anyone or you are one of them, I appreciate the contact.
I'm particularly interested in the genetics of ADHD and Alzheimer's Disease. I want to look into the probability of people having ADHD possibly being more susceptible to Alzheimer's Disease.
What are effective and long-lasting treatments for ADD (attention deficit disorder) / ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder), excluding stimulants (like amphetamines, SNRIs, NRIs, or NDRIs)?
It is well known that executive functions are impaired in individuals with anxiety and mood disorders, and that such impairments remain even after successful treatments for such these disorders. Results from some studies suggest that executive function difficulties may even be present before the onset of anxiety and mood disorders and play a role in their development and maintenance. Moreover, complete remission of anxiety and depressive symptoms is not always observed after treatment, and performance on tests that measure executive functions is influenced by one's affective state (stress, fatigue, etc.).
On the other hand, other conditions are typically associated with executive dysfunction and/or can lead to such impairments (e.g. ADHD, autism, traumatic brain injury, and medical conditions such as phenylketonuria (PKU), MS, diabetes, etc.) To complicate matters even more, psychiatric disorders (e.g. anxiety, depression) and general stress, fatigue, etc. are often comorbid to such medical conditions.
That being said, are there measures, specific executive dysfunctions or deficit patterns that can help differentiate executive function difficulties primarily related to psychiatric disorders/affective state from executive function difficulties that are more primarily related to another medical and/or neurological conditions (especially in individuals who present (or may present) with such comorbidity)?
Thank you in advance!
I am looking for full dissertations of reviews which have made use of the Downs & Black CMSQ in order to get some sort of structure as to how to present the results.
I am currently busy with a systematic review on the efficacy of homeopathic treatment for PMS and would appreciate any assistance.
Does anyone know if there is a scale or lists for identification the ADHD in preschool level ?
Its very hard to recognized ADHD in early childhood without other diagnosis, but also is very important to recognising risks for prevention behavior disorder.
At present there appears that the main studies being carried out are in the form of animal trials or pre-clinical/case studies on children with severe/recurrent epilepsy.
I am just looking into the stress vulnerability model for Bipolar Affective Disorder Is anyone aware of research in this area? Thanks
Within physiotherapy it seem to be well established that horse-riding has positive effects on motoric skills and brain activity on persons with physical disabilities. The rhythm of horse gait seems to be a good stimulation for people that have impaired ability to walk by themselves. At the same time they might get the chance to be outside and experience nature on horseback, with the stimulating effects of being in nature together with a big, friendly horse.
In some countries there are also some small-scale trials, but mainly practical experience, of camel riding for people with disabilities, both physical and mental. Here is some info in German: http://www.therapeutisches-kamelreiten.de/therapietier_kamel.html
I am interested in if there is any investigation of camel gait (ambling) and the effect of it from a physiotherapeutic point of view, as well as compared to horse gait (walk-pace, trotting) for the same purpose.
It is easy to see that a two-humped camel may give more comfort and support for people who are not able to sit on a horse, since they can sit quite safely between the humps. But what about differences between camel ambling and horse's walk-pace? Are these differences important or not, from a physiotherapeutic viewpoint?
What is the the most validated measure of Sluggish cognitive tempo (SCT)/Concentration deficit disorder (CDD) for 6-12 YO?
Ideally a questionnaire with a parent and teacher report version
I am working with a young researcher in Pakistan who is doing a study of 150 disabled (deaf and hard of hearing) students in a government special school. She is trying to asses the degree to which these students' exposure to discrimination and violence accounts for their problematic behavior. Apparently, deafness and hearing loss are viewed as genetic problems and the severe discrimination exercised against these children is not counted. She is at a university that does not have much of a library, much less access to academic journals, so I am trying to help her with references and readings. Any suggestions -- especially copies of articles! -- would be deeply appreciated.
I'm interested in any studies which have specifically researched night disturbances, sleep disorders, and/or hallucinations in Alzheimer's patients. I'm also interested in any research focused on potential interventions like an established night routine.
I am looking for clinical studies or drug trials related to children (age 0 to 6 preferably) that looked at children with varying GI issues, fistula, GERD symptoms, ulcers, etc that might have looked at child behavior. ADHD just seemed an easy search term, but it doesn't have to be limited to ADHD spectrum diagnoses.
I have been reading up on various timing theories/hypotheses of ASD and while they seem to cover a lot of ground wrt symptoms and phenomena seen in ASD, I struggle to see how they could account for children developing normally or close to normal up until their 2nd or 3rd year and then regress developmentally.
The following case record did not mention the effect of lithium for the treatment of ADHD on the breast and lung cancer. Given that lithium inhibits GSK-3 beta, it is likely that long-term use of lithium activates canonical Wnt/beta-catenin signal pathway in those cancer tissues.
Would lithium affect the progression of cancer driven by canonical Wnt signal pathway?
Does anyone know the study which use Conners 3rd edition for assessing ADHD symptoms among preschool-aged (less than 6 years old) children? I have found only one study (Bellido González, 2013). Please tell me if any more.
I am working in a study about verbalization of false belief task in children with ADHD, in my results, I have not found diferences between children who verbalized the task and who didn’t do it. What do you think’, some Idea? Thanks.
knowledge, misconceptions, and lacks about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) on teacher's but i need the information in Spanish and I prefer something on Latin America, if it has something in Costa Rica would be amazing.
The teacher´s It is supposed to know about diagnostic, treatment and characteristics about TDAH in general.
I want to classify the test subjects as either having ADHD or not. The training set consists of 64% healthy people and 36% afflicted with ADHD. I know that in this set the positive(having ADHD) is not rare. But can I learn the distribution of the healthy scans and use anomaly detection even if the postive samples are not rare.
I am producing a systematic review on this subject and would also be interested in works about Dance and ODD, TS, anxiety, learning and other concerns related to ADHD. Other disciplines, such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Feldenkrais Method, and Mindful Movement are also being included in the review.
So far, I have found two publications focusing on ADHD management through DMT (Grönlund et al., 2005; Anderson, 2015) and have asked for a few full-text articles in the ResearchGate community about the subject.
Would you know of any work that could fit the search criteria? Would it be possible for me to have full-text copies of them?
Thank you very much for your help!
I want to use this theory as a theoritical framework for a study of children with ADHD. A researcher with a clear explanation of the theory
29 yr old male slips on compacted snow and ice falling backwards and sustaining a LOC and/or anterograde amnesia of about an hour. He had pre-existing TS that started around age 9. It had become quiescent during his early to mid twenties to the point where he obtained full time work in a financial office. However, after his fall, his TS symptoms became prominent. He had co-morbidities of ADHD, depression, OSA. Also HX of cannabis use (in HS it helped his TS symptoms) and alcohol abuse.
Advanced imaging (DTI) & Flair show multiple areas of reduced FA including in the cortical spinal tracts.
My efforts to locate literature reporting the effects of TBI on pre-existing TS haven't been successful. Likely would only expect a case report. It make sense that a TBI superimposed on a pre-existing brain disorder would potentially have significant consequences.
I´d be most grateful for any suggestions of publications in this field.
In specific though, I`m interested in epidemiological studies comparing the prevalence of depressive episodes of those
- diagnosed with ADHD and getting treatment
- not yet diagnosed with ADHD (but fulfill the criteria)
- don´t fulfill the criteria for ADHD
