August 5, 2013

Clinical Psychologist Julia McQuade, an assistant professor of psychology at Amherst College, is seeking children aged 8 to 12 years to participate in a study she is conducting at Amherst called the Children's Social Reasoning Study.

The purpose of this study is to understand how children with ADHD think about their social relationships. She is trying to recruit children between the ages of 8 and 12 with a diagnosis of ADHD to participate. A description of the study is below.

Children's Social Reasoning Study
  
Is your child:
  • Diagnosed with ADHD?
  • Between the ages of 8 and 12 years old?
 
If so, he or she may be eligible to participate in a research study examining how children with and without ADHD understand their social relationships. Participating children and their parent(s) will complete a two hour assessment at Amherst College that includes an interview and measures assessing social experiences and cognitive abilities. They will be accepting families all summer and fall!
 
$75 compensation is provided.
