Clinical Trial Summary

The proposed study is to be carried out in 2021 - 2024 with youths aged 6 - 15 in Hong Kong. This is a randomized waitlist-controlled trial that aims to examine the effectiveness of the ADHD+ new service protocol. This ADHD+ new service protocol intervention will be delivered for 6 months in the format of groups by frontline social workers trained by professional clinicians including clinical psychologists and psychiatrists. It is designed to reduce ADHD and related symptoms in individuals aged between 6 and 15 years. Core treatment components include internet use/addiction intervention, cognitive training, emotion management, social skills training, occupational training, emotion support/befriending, parenting training, and career guidance. It is hypothesized that youths receiving the intervention will have reduced ADHD and related symptoms when compared with controls. Findings will allow the investigators to better understand the effectiveness of the new ADHD+ service; and in the long run, the service model can be generalized to community based early interventions for other uncomplicated mental disorders.
