Welcome to the ADHD Lifespan Treatment and Education Research (ALTER) Lab!

Dr. Kevin Antshel is the director of the ADHD Lifespan, Treatment, And Education Research program here at Syracuse University as well as the Syracuse University ADHD Clinic. The ALTER Lab’s research and clinical interests focus on developmental psychopathology, with specific emphasis on attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the lifespan. Dr. Antshel is particularly interested in further investigating and understanding the heterogeneity of ADHD (especially ADHD in the context of comorbidities such as autism spectrum disorder and medical disorders such as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome). Dr. Antshel’s goal is to use information about the heterogeneity of ADHD to further explore and predict mediators and moderators of treatment outcomes.

Students interested in ADHD, behavioral treatment and/or social/peer relationships would be an especially good match for my lab. Initially, students will join an existing study to help gain research and clinical experience. As students progress in our APA-accredited doctoral program, they are encouraged to develop novel research ideas to investigate. All students have significant opportunities to present and publish from currently recruiting studies as well as several large existing databases.
