The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of group parent training taught through videoconferencing on ADHD treatment via a comparison between participants using traditional face-to-face parent training sessions and a group using teleconferencing.
Subjects with a primary diagnosis of ADHD between the ages of 6 and 14 years were enrolled. All subjects were screened and assessed for psychiatric and learning disorders using structured interviews (DICA, parent and child version, Reich et al, 2000) based on DSM IV criteria and parent and teacher rating scales. Mothers took the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) to assess for depression.
Parents or primary caregivers were randomized to two treatment arms (videoconference or face to face). Ten sessions of weekly parent training through either videoconference or face-to-face delivery was conducted using Dr. Russell A. Barkley's manual. A non-mandatory skill training and play group was offered to the children of both groups while parents attended the parent training group in order to provide child care for the parents during the training sessions.
Following outcomes will be measured to assess the effectiveness of the intervention:
Primary outcome Acceptance of the parent and children on the mode the communication as well as parent training.
1. Parent-child relations measured by the Parent Child Relationship Questionnaire (PCQ)
2. The Vanderbilt Assessment Scale (parent & teacher versions), Children Global Assessment Scale (CGAS), Clinical Global Impression- Severity score (CGI-S), and Clinical Global Impression-Improvement Scores (CGI-I) assessed the severity of core symptoms of ADHD and oppositional/aggressive symptoms.
3. The parent and teacher-rated versions of the Social Skills Rating System (SSRS) assessed social skills.

The role of nutrients and dietary factors in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) remains unclear.
Clinical overlap between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is increasingly appreciated, but the underlying brain mechanisms remain unknown to date.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder in childhood. Exploring the risk factors for ADHD is helpful in preventing ADHD.
A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)
