03-08-16, 08:44 PM

My name is Rob and I am a 4th year Psy.D. student at California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, Los Angeles. I am currently collecting data for my dissertation and could use YOUR help!

Are you the parent or guardian of an Adolescent (Age 13-18) who has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?
I am conducting a study examining parental perceptions of utilizing exercise as a treatment option for adolescents with ADHD.

Participation will include:
15-20 minute Questionnaire
Some basic (non-identifying) demographic information
Surveys on your perceptions of, and attitudes toward, exercise, as well as on your experiences with ADHD treatments for your adolescent
Participation in this study will be completely anonymous.

Upon completion of the questionnaire you can enter to win one of three $50 VISA Gift Cards (optional).

Take the Questionnaire by clicking HERE (

Your participation not only helps out an overworked grad student, but also contributes to the growing body of research on parenting adolescents with ADHD!

Thank you in advance for your time, I appreciate it more than you know!

Please do not post any personal information to this thread.

I tried taking this survey and it turned out to be way longer than I thought. I had to abandon it.

I apologize it was longer than you expected! I completely understand that we do not always have a block of time to sit and complete a survey (especially if it takes longer than planned). So I appreciate you taking the time you did!

Note for everyone:
Fortunately, if you do not have time to finish when you begin, you can exit the survey and return when you have more time.

The survey has a save/continue function that saves progress each time you hit the "next" button. So if you click the link to the survey again and open it in the same browser as before (if you have cookies enabled) you should be taken back to where you left off.

If other people ran into this same issue, I would PLEASE ask that you try to return to complete it when you have more time! Thank you so much!

I truly appreciate the time you give to complete a survey like this, and am extremely grateful for everyone's help!

I didn't have an issue filling it out time wise, however, I have never considered exercise as a way to help with ADHD since my ADHD son is VERY active on his own. Many of my answers were does not apply.
