UK study into navigational impairment in those with ADHD

PARTICIPANTS REQUIRED FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH

Are you the parent of a child with ADHD? If so, you may be able to help us.

Description
This is a unique opportunity to participate in a UK-wide research study aiming to uncover whether a deficit in motor capability is a precursor to navigational impairment in those with ADHD. In other words, whether skills such as balance, walking, running, throwing and catching (motor skills) are related to the development of a sense of direction (navigation) in this group. This is an upcoming pilot study at the Institute of Education in which participants will be asked to navigate a route using virtual reality software and complete a short test on motor function. We hope that this research will provide a clearer understanding of the functional deficits in ADHD, and thus support parents and carers in the future through alternative treatment approaches and cognitive training.

Criteria
We are looking for boys and girls aged 5-15 years, with a clinical diagnosis of ADHD.

Duration
Participants will be required for one session lasting approximately 1-2 hours.

Location
Institute of Education
25 Woburn Square
London
WC1H 0AA

Participants will be reimbursed for travel expenses. Alternatively, I am happy to travel to participants homes for convenience.

If you are interested in getting involved, or would like any further details please do not hesitate to contact me on: 07585554068 or nadia87khan@gmail.com Your help in supporting this study would be greatly appreciated. Nadia Khan (Research Assistant to Dr Emily Farran)
