Proposed Project

Longitudinal follow-up of Youth with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder identified in Community Settings: Examining Health Status, Correlates, and Effects associated with treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder [OMB #0920-0747 exp. 7/31/1010]—Revision—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 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.

The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at CDC promotes the health of children with developmental disorders. As part of these efforts, two contracts were awarded in FY 2007-2010 to follow up a sample of children originally enrolled in community-based epidemiological research on ADHD among elementary-aged youth, known as the Project to Learn about ADHD in Youth (PLAY Study Collaborative), which informed community-based prevalence, rates of comorbidity, 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 and in collaboration with CDC scientists.

The purpose of the longitudinal follow-up program is to study the long-term outcomes and health status for children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) identified and treated in community settings through a systematic follow-up of the subjects who participated in the PLAY Study Collaborative. There is a 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 US communities, emphasizing the public health importance of longitudinal research in this area.

Given the lack of detailed information about longitudinal development in children with and without ADHD, there is need to continue assessing the children into older adolescence. This program extends data collection for two additional waves.

Minor changes to the assessment instruments are planned in order to include age appropriate assessment of treatment and health risk behaviors in older adolescents, such as understanding motor vehicle operation and dating behavior.

There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
