Study Details

Does your child have a hard time paying attention? Fidget or move around a lot? Interrupt you or others? Do YOU also struggle with paying attention? If so, the TPAC program might be a good fit for you and your child!

The Treating Parents with ADHD and their Children (TPAC) program is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and is a research collaboration between the University of Maryland, Children’s National Hospital, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. The program aims to help families in which both the parent and child are struggling with attention and behavioral difficulties.

You and your child could have the option to take part in this program if you may have ADHD that is not being treated with medication and have a child between the ages of 3-8 years who is at risk for ADHD, or has ADHD and has not yet received treatment with medication.

Eligible parents invited to participate in our project will receive 10 weeks of Behavioral Parent Training delivered via telehealth. Some parents will also receive a stimulant medication trial with a common ADHD medication. We will also collect information at a few time points throughout the program: before treatment starts, at a midpoint, after treatment, and at a follow-up point. Participants will receive $195 in financial compensation over the course of the study.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact: or (202) 922-7044.
