Recommendation ID

Children and young people aged 5 to 18 years – brief, group-based, ADHDfocused, parent-training intervention What is the clinical and cost effectiveness, and optimum length, of a brief parent-training intervention for parents and carers of children and young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) aged 5 to 18 years?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- There was no clear evidence identified about the benefit of formal parent-training programmes for ADHD symptoms in children and young people aged 5 to 18 years. The cost effectiveness of these programmes was unclear, partly because of uncertainty over the number of sessions and the length of programme needed to achieve clinical benefit. This research recommendation would help address these uncertainties.
