Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the change in neuropsychological status from baseline to 6 months post-initiation of atomoxetine treatment in children ages 6 to 10.5 diagnosed with ADHD.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 40 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label Pilot Study of Atomoxetine Hydrochloride to Evaluate Neuropsychological Function in Children Ages 6 to 10 Years With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Study Start Date : September 2005
Study Completion Date : June 2006

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The neuropsychological status in five domains as measured by the change in the NEPSY from baseline to 6 months post-initiation of atomoxetine treatment in children ages 6 to 10.5 diagnosed with ADHD.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess changes in executive function and attention;Compare changes in neuropsychological status in a normal control group, gender and age matched to atomoxetine-treated patients at baseline and 6 months
  2. Efficacy of atomoxetine after 2 and 6 months, or endpoint from baseline;Assess the correlation of change from baseline to 6 months, or at study discontinuation, in ADHD symptoms with change from baseline in the neuropsychological functioning
  3. Assess the relationships of change from baseline to approximately 2 and 6 months, or endpoint in the core symptoms of ADHD with the changes in functional outcomes as assessed by the WFIRS-P
  4. Examine the French language version of the WFIRS-P questionnaire's psychometric properties including internal consistency and responsiveness to change.
