Dr. Arthur D. Anastopoulos

Dr. Arthur D. Anastopoulos (Human Development and Family Studies) received a continuation of funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences for the project “Improving the Educational and Social-Emotional Functioning of College Students with ADHD.”  The goal of this study is to conduct a multi-site randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of ACCESS – Accessing Campus Connections and Empowering Student Success – a cognitive-behavioral treatment program for college students with ADHD that includes group therapy and individual mentoring services delivered across two consecutive semesters. A total of 250 college students with well-defined ADHD from UNCG and its collaborating institution, Virginia Commonwealth University, have thus far participated in the study. The goals for the upcoming continuation funding year are to finish collecting outcome data and to begin conducting planned statistical analyses to assess the therapeutic benefits of ACCESS.
