The Pittsburgh ADHD Risk in Infancy Study (PARIS) enrolled 78 infants between the ages of 6-11 months and their biological parents, with and without ADHD, to examine the development of attention in infants and toddlers at high and low risk for ADHD. Outcomes from this study could provide information regarding the ability to detect risk for inattention in the first year of life. This is a critical first step towards the ultimate goal of early identification and intervention for children at risk for ADHD.

The PARIS Preschool study will enroll 4- and 5- year-old children from the PARIS sample to examine the development of attention into preschool. For more information, please call/text 412-420-8309 or send an email to PARISstudy@upmc.edu.
PARIS Preschool is supported by a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant from the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.
This study is enrolling expectant parents (with and without ADHD) to examine even earlier signals of inattention beginning as newborns and followed through toddlerhood.
