Pittsburgh ADHD Risk in Infancy Study (PARIS)

Principal Investigator: Heather Joseph, DO

Funding Source: Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation

The Pittsburgh ADHD Risk in Infancy Study (PARIS) is a new study being conducted by Drs. Heather Joseph and Brooke Molina, University of Pittsburgh, and Dr. Erik Thiessen, Carnegie Mellon University.

The study will enroll infants under the age of 10 months and their biological parents, with and without ADHD, to examine attention in infants 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.
