This research study will aim to observe and investigate the perceptions of young people with ADHD and their view on the disorder. This will provide a better understanding of how a child with ADHD perceives themselves and also looks at how they perceive others. This research study will also focus on the experiences and perceptions felt by their parents, teachers, and support staff, etc. This is important to look at the participation of the child’s voice. This research study has been approved and will be supervised by Dr. Colette Soan, SEBD lecturer & tutor at the University of Birmingham, England.
