Voices On Identity, Childhood, Ethics and Stimulants: Children join the debate (VOICES study final report & animated film)

Voices On Identity, Childhood, Ethics and Stimulants: Children join the debate is a Wellcome Trust-funded research project that sheds fresh light on children’s experiences with ADHD diagnosis and stimulant drug treatments. It is led by Dr Ilina Singh, Reader in Bioethics & Society at the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine and Institute of Psychiatry (King’s College London).

The study involved interviews with over 150 children aged 9 – 14 in the United States and United Kingdom using verbal, visual and standardized methods.

The VOICES study final report is now available.  The report is aimed at parents and professionals who work with children, and includes a 17 minute animated film, ‘ADHD and Me’, that brings the interviews with children to life.

The report, the film, academic publications and more can be accessed through the VOICES website. The film has been separated into individual 90+ second clips representing some key themes in the VOICES study. These clips can be accessed on You Tube.
