ImpactADHD is doing a research study this summer with Mindprint Learning.
We’re accepting participants in the study through Aug 20 — We’re excited  we’ve been accepted to present a Poster on the results at CHADD in November. Here are some more details:

A joint study sponsored by two leading, research-backed educational programs, ImpactADHD and Mindprint Learning is seeking participants. Every participating family will receive both of these unique programs:

  1. ImpactADHD’s Sanity School, an online parent training program, which includes six recorded classes and two months of support (weekly accountability emails, workbook, access to a moderated private forum, and twice-monthly group Q & A calls with a coach). Sanity School has demonstrated improved parent confidence, reduced parent stress, and improvements in behavioral symptoms of ADHD including independence and self-management of frustration.
  2. Mindprint Learning’s Comprehensive Student Assessment and Toolbox, which includes a one hour online cognitive assessment of ten core learning skills in the domains of speed, executive functions, complex reasoning and memory. Neurocognitive research demonstrates that when teachers, parents and the child understand learning strengths and needs, instruction can be customized to the individual learner to improve outcomes. Participants will be provided with a personalized learning program to improve study skills, in-class learning, and test performance. 

These programs would typically cost a combined value of $398. We are offering a limited time rate of $100 (75% discount) for both programs combined, if you sign-up by August 20th, 2016.

Participants will be required to complete brief questionnaires about your experiences with the programs. Both programs will need to be completed (10 hour minimum commitment) no later than October 15, 2016. The aggregated data with no personal identifying information will be presented in a research study.  Children must be between ages 8 and 18 and reading at a 2nd grade level. Children who take medication for ADHD are welcome to participate in this study. 

If you are selected for this study, you will receive a link for purchase and a start date. Please fill out the application to apply.
