At the School of Psychology our approach to both research and teaching is to integrate science with practice. As such, the DCSC team works closely with regional partner Barwon Health.
The team also works closely with the school's developmental neuroscience and behavioural health and technology units, and the clinical training program.
Attention Kids! is a research study looking into why some children with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have difficulties with movement, coordination and social functioning.
Funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), this study could help us understand why some children with ADHD have trouble with balance, or might have more bumps or falls at home and at school.
We may also develop an understanding of why some children with ADHD have difficulty with friendships and being successful socially.
Could your child take part?
We’re looking for boys aged 7–12 years old to take part in our Attention Kids! study. To find out more, please contact:
