Proposed Project

Longitudinal Follow-up of Youth with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Identified in Community Settings: Examining Health Status, Correlates, and Effects Associated with Treatment for ADHD—New—National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

This project will collect data from proxy respondents and youths with and without Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This program addresses the Healthy People 2010 focus area of Mental Health and Mental Disorders, and describes the prevalence, incidence, long-term outcomes, treatment(s), select co-morbid conditions, secondary conditions, and health risk behavior of youth with ADHD relative to youth without ADHD.

In FY 2002-FY 2005 two cooperative agreements (transitioned to extramural research) were awarded to conduct community-based epidemiological research on ADHD among elementary-aged youth, known as the Project to Learn about ADHD in Youth (PLAY Study Collaborative, OMB# 0920-0584, expired on March 31, 2006). These studies provided community-based prevalence, rates of co-morbidity, and rates of health risk behaviors among elementary-age youth with and without ADHD as determined by a rigorous case definition developed by the principal investigators in collaboration with CDC scientists.

The purpose of this program is to study the long-term outcomes and health status for children with ADHD identified and treated in community settings through a systematic follow-up of the subjects who participated in the PLAY Study Collaborative. There is considerable interest in the long-term outcomes of youth with ADHD as well as the effects of treatment, lack of treatment, and quality of care in average U.S. communities, emphasizing the public health importance of longitudinal research in this area. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
