Research and Education for ADHD in Childhood Development

Welcome & Overview 

Welcome to the Research and Education for ADHD in Childhood Development (REACH) Lab at Lehigh University.

We are building out our new website and hope that you check back frequently for new information! Please be sure to share this website with your connections.

We are including information on current and past projects that we run through the lab as well as current team members and our alums. 

Our reach extends from as close as Bethlehem, PA where the lab is physically located to Ohio, North Carolina and up to Rhode Island. We collaborate with other institutions, community centers, and schools, among others.
