The direct link to the interview is http://www.abc.net.au/tv/goodgame/stories/s2067977.htm just click on play video.

The episode is Serious Games, and our particular segment for the study is roughly 4 minutes into the show.

We also have another interview coming up with a news program in the upcoming month, which will look more at the results of our study. Stay tuned!

Television interview for Project

Watch an interview with Dr. Andrew Campbell, and myself talking about our Biofeedback and AD/HD Research Project on the television program The 7:30 Report, on the ABC (in Australia). There will also be footage on what happens during the Biofeedback sessions conducted with the children, and an interview with the family.

The interview will air tonight (Wendesday, 4th June), on channel ABC, at 7:30pm.

For those of you who miss it, or are not in Australia to watch it, the episode will also be available to watch on the program's website at http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/ after the airing of the interview.

awww thanks r2d2!!

we didn't have any funding for the project unfortunately..
i could only imagine what more we could have done if it were funded. for one, we could have had a greater sample of participants which would have boosted the research more.

it is very difficult to get funding for research. but it is available..

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

Hi Inquisitive,

Really appreciate the work you are doing with ADHDers. I love what you are doing but hate the spin the media always puts on ADD.

For example, the edited version of the program was "how to tame ADHD without the use of harmful drugs".

This implies that you can do it totally drug free. Unfortunately, while many of us can live without them, we really don't achieve much. Also, there are a lot of adult ADDers who don't "grow out of it". The man interviewed also says this, saying the best treatment is multimodal, or a combination of things.

I saw the full length interview on the website and think the gentleman interviewed gave great answers but the reporter was really biased towards getting a particular slant for the edited program.

Anyway, that's just my opinion... it's really hard to see positive role models in the media for ADD.

I think you are doing a great job with your research... it's a shame there is a lack of funding and that other specialist treatments are often so expensive for us.

Keep up the good work and hope your website is a success.

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

Hi aloha1983,

Thanks so much, I can see where you are coming from regarding the questionning of the interviewer. I think, because of the recent news about ritalin being used on 2 year olds, that the program wanted to look particularly at the effects of treatments away from medication.

I don't think AD/HD is something someone particularly "grows out of".. I think that they learn skills to manage everyday life, which is important for funcitoning.

We definately do not think the biofeedback intervention we trialed can, or should replace medication. In fact, in our other television interview, my supervisor actually states this. We just think that medication should not always be the first treatment option, and that parents should be made aware of what else is available.

Thank you so much for your support in our study. Hopefully the government can see some light into what we are trying to do, and help out for the greater good of the families that are struggling.

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

Yeah, I know, I saw he said that and I thought, "good on you", and it stinks the program didn't show it.

I often wonder how we can change the view of ADD in Australia, I really want to do something about it but it's hard to know where to start. It's such a taboo, I would love for people to be able to speak about it more freely with employers, friends and potential partners. Instead there's such a big stigma often we don't say anything.

Any ideas of where to start? My friends and family have suggested a website (yours is great, by the way!), a book, or telling our stories to magazines geared towards families. I thought you might have some other ideas?

Thanks so much for the reply, really appreciate it! Feel free to get in contact if you ever need any qualitative feedback etc.

Many thanks,
Kristen

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

People are always thinking of ways to get word out there about changing the stigma attached to ADHD, and it is tough. I think that websites, forums, and blogs etc. are great - it brings people affected with ADHD together, and a great place to find out about ADHD straight from people who are either living through it, have experience with people who have it, or (like me) are researching it, to gain inside view knowledge.

The only issue with these mediums, are that they are mainly viewed by people who seek it. That is, people who seek support, want to have a say, or looking for answers. The stigma is strong because people who believe the 'wrong' stuff about ADHD are those that read mainly whatever the headlines are. Which is devastating, because that means the way to get through to them would be to be in a headline story.

Sad, but true don't you think?

Maybe you can contact some newspaper reporters about a story you'd like them to write about how people with ADHD are affected with the news and effects of their news headlines have on you. Write to newspapers and reporters and say you and thousands of other Australians and international people, are tired of being portrayed in a dirty light. Tell them that you have a long list of people who are willing to give comments and stories about how you are all affected.

I'm sure if they were hounded down by enough people on the issue they may sit down and consider it!

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

i'm into the idea that LIFE itself at all times, is this biofeedback video game.. lol..

Quote:

Having said that though.. it'd be interesting to go down that rabbit hole, to see what it is about, i'm supposing

Quote:
"how to tame ADHD without the use of harmful drugs".
I'm not sure these mild stimulants (like adderall) are all that harmful.. i benefitted

So we are supposing that activity treats ADD/HD.. in a place quite safe.. but nothing has ever CURED me of the symptoms.

stims meds are good, video games are good

Re: NEW! ADHD Research Project at The University of Sydney Australia

Hi my son is 7 years old has been on ritalin for about 2 years is now on 9 tablets 10mg a day he has 3 at 6am 3 at 10am and 3 at 2pm, He ios also on prozac and 3 melotonin. he has a diagnosis of ADHD variant and ASD. We need help desperately. If you have any tests or any other suggestions to what we can do in order to be 100% sure that the diagnosis is correct we would be greatful to here it. He is not having learning problems but his behaviour is extremely impulsive irrational and very much hard to handle. Diet changes have been tried with no success. Ritalin seems to make him a bit more manageable but still not working as well as it once did. Thanks for your time.

Antzpantz, if you would create a new post under the 'Parents of ADHD Children' section, you will get more views and responses there. Or maybe a moderator could move to the appropriate spot?
