Child Stress and Parenting Study (CSPS)
1) Does the behavior of children exposed to greater stress resemble those behaviors typically associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)?
2) Does the quality of the parent-child relationship play a role in children’s attention and problem solving skills?
3) Does the quality of the teacher-child relationship play a role in teacher’s accuracy in predicting children’s abilities and contribute to children’s performance?
8-12 years of age; no history of intellectual disability, specific learning disorder, or psychosis
We are interested in the effects of stressful life events and current parenting techniques on attention and executive functioning abilities in school-age children. Should you choose to participate, we will coordinate a 2- to 2.5-hour appointment at the EMU Psychology Clinic. You will answer a number of questionnaires about your child and your family, and your child will answer questionnaires about his/her behavior and will complete some game-like tasks that assess his/her cognitive ability, working memory, attention, and problem solving skills. We will compensate you for your time with a $40 Meijer gift card, and your child will receive a certificate of participation.
