Welcome to the Research Participant Recruitment Portal

Thank you for visiting this page.
We appreciate your time, support, and commitment to clinical research.

What is this research study about?
The objective of this study is to better understand the development of executive function. As described by experts at Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child, executive function refers to “mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully.” 

This study is part of a doctoral research project at the Faculty of Medicine, The University of Queensland, Australia. The study procedures have been reviewed by experts and approved by the university ethics committee [also known as Institutional Review Board].

Who can participate in this research study?
To participate in this study, you have to be either a parent or legal guardian of a child, adolescent, or young adult. We have a few criteria to ensure that we collect data from a wide range of people. To make sure you are a good fit, we request you complete the questionnaire on this portal, which will take between 3 and 5 minutes. Your answers will help us find out if you can take part.

If you meet our criteria, you will be immediately directed to the next step. At that stage, we will provide more specific information about the study. If you agree to participate after reading that information, you will be asked to electronically agree to an informed consent form. Once we have your consent, you will be directed to a brief online questionnaire about your child, followed by another online questionnaire specifically about your child’s behavior.

Your privacy is important to us. Please be assured that we do not need access to any personal records or information from a third-party [e.g., doctor, teacher, etc.]. We assure you that we will never publicly release your responses in a way that could identify you, your child, or any other family members.

If you do not meet the criteria to participate in this study, you will not be directed to the next step. The most common reason for not meeting our criteria is that we may already have enough volunteers who filled up the number of participants required at that time.

Once again, thank you for your time and generosity.
