We are looking for adults between 21-55 years old and diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and use stimulant medication to participate in our study. We want to determine the role of ADHD stimulant medication on balance and other factors, such as physical activity in improving balance performance. We hypothesize that ADHD will improve balance performance in adults with ADHD. We also hypothesize that moderate to vigorous physical activity behaviors will positively influence balance performance in this population. Participants will be required to make two visits. Once on-medication; and on the second visit, we will ask participants to forgo ADHD medication 24 hours before the testing. For more information please contact Mansour at (205) 503-2977, or by email at amansour@uab.edu.
