Current and most recent projects

This project works with Scottish secondary pupils, their families and school staff to explore what it is like to have a diagnosis for a neurodevelopmental disorder such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and behavioural disorders such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). The study also looks at what it is like for pupils who do not have a diagnosis of a behavioural disorder but who at times and for various reasons can need additional support to help them manage their behaviour in school. The study explores the reasons why some pupils are referred for diagnosis, and others are not.

If you would like to find out more about the study or to discuss your potential involvement, please e-mail the research team.
