Participating families must have at least two children, and at least one with ADHD (between the ages of 7 and 17). No travel is required for this study. Participants will receive study-related tests at no cost. Participation may help in developing a new treatment for ADHD. Call (800) 411-1222; TTY (866) 411-1010.
