Research Endeavors

The Developmental Disorders Section has in recent years conducted clinical research projects including questionnaires in our OPC, a stimulant medication clinical trial, and several collaborative projects with Pediatrics and the Behavioral Medicine Center in our own Department. This has resulted in over three dozen publications, posters, and presentations at local, regional, and national meetings over the past few years. A recent focus has been Driving Studies with adolescents who have ADHD. Fellows in training receive mentoring from our faculty for their projects as part of their educational curriculum which encourages scholarly activity. A future goal is to partner with faculty in our Department and throughout UVA in collaborative research activities.
