The Studying Autism and ADHD Risks (STAARS) project is specifically researching the early development of baby brothers and sisters of children with autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders and typical development.

In the long term, researchers hope this will help to improve early detection and diagnosis of children with ASD and ADHD, allowing for earlier and more effective intervention aimed at improving the quality of life of children and their families.


The training program is completed at twelve weekly home visits that, on average, last approximately one hour each. The team are flexible and are happy to work around your schedule. Everything in the study has been reviewed by ethics boards at the University and by the NHS. There are no known risks involved with taking part in the research and we will cover any expenses. You personal information will not be identified in the research - all data is anonymous and stored to the standards of data protection legislation.

To participate in the study you will require;
1. An infant under 14 months old;
2. A family member with ADHD, or suspected ADHD. This should be the infant’s brother, sister or a biological parent.
