‌Parenting African American Children With and Without ADHD

The primary aim of this study is to compare parenting behaviors and cognitions between African American mother-child dyads (i.e., between dyads with children with and without ADHD). Given the research on racial/ethnic differences in parenting both in the general population and in families of children with ADHD, it is important to better characterize African American parenting within this clinical population. This research should help to elucidate the relationships between diagnosis and parenting behaviors and cognitions. This study is not currently recruiting participants.

There is a dearth of research on ADHD symptoms during pregnancy, and therefore, more studies are needed in this area. This study has completed and is not currently recruiting participants.
