Biography:My research is geared toward better understanding the social, academic, and self-system functioning of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) from a developmental psychopathology perspective. Of note, most of my research is designed with the end goal of applying what is learned toward developing better evidence-based treatments for children with ADHD. My current research program involves studies in several areas: 1) mechanisms of self-concept in children with ADHD; 2) evidence-based treatment of childhood ADHD; 3) peer relationship problems of children with ADHD; and 4) parental beliefs and characteristics as predictors of treatment response in children with ADHD. Representative publications are listed below: Hoza, B., Johnston, C., Pillow, D. R., & Ascough, J. C. (2006).
