The current study compared the efficacy of two 10-week behavioral interventions for improving the friendships of children with this disorder. Participants were children ages 6-11 with ADHD and their families, who were experiencing friendship problems. Outcome measures assessed friendship quality and friendship behaviors at baseline (pre-treatment), post-treatment, and 8-month follow-up.
