Portrait of Dr. Arthur AnastopoulosDr. Arthur Anastopoulos (Psychology) received an increase in funding from the National Institutes of Health for the project “Longitudinal Outcome of College Students with ADHD.” “Although there recently has been an increase in research investigating ADHD among adults (Barkley, Murphy, & Fischer, 2008), relatively less research has specifically addressed the manner in which ADHD impacts young adults attending college (DuPaul & Weyandt, 2009),” the abstract says. This study will be the first to systematically assess the educational, cognitive, social, psychological and vocational functioning of college students with ADHD, relative to a sample of peers without ADHD, over time.
