This dataset is the result of an investigation of caregivers’ management and treatment preferences for their ADHD child. From January 2013 through March 2015 a total of 184 caregivers of children 4 to 14 years of age were recruited from primary care, pediatric outpatient clinics, and support organizations in Maryland. The study explored caregiver variability and priorities when considering medication, change in management options over time, and preference for different treatment attributes. Data were collected using Best-Worst scaling and the Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Parent Rating Scale (VADPRS). This dataset consists of caregiver and child demographic information, child diagnoses and treatment characteristics data, and caregiver preferences with regard to medication and observed and desired improvements in their child’s ADHD.
