UBC’s Faculty of Education’s Children, Families, & Communities Lab is recruiting mothers with ADHD who are also raising a child with ADHD.  

Are you a mother with ADHD, with a biological child with ADHD between the ages of 6 to 12? Take part in a study exploring the experiences of mothers with ADHD while raising a child with ADHD!

Study Description:

This study aims to explore and describe the lived experiences of mothers with ADHD while they raise a child with ADHD. The purpose of this study is to further our understanding of mothers with ADHD while they raise children with ADHD. While there is a lot of research documenting the difficulties that families with ADHD experience, we hope to explore the potential strengths that mothers with ADHD have when it comes to parenting their child with ADHD. The study will require participating in two Zoom chats and completing four short journal entries.

Study Procedure:

If you are eligible for the study, you will be asked to:

  1. Fill out a brief background survey (5 mins).
  2. Participate in an online interview via Zoom (60 mins).
  3. Complete four short journal entries (5-10 mins).
  4. A second interview (30mins) may be scheduled for participants to review and clarify responses.

This study will take place online.
