The present study examined whether the effectiveness of the Children’s Friendship Training (CFT) in children with ADHD is maintained following treatment endpoint and whether it is effective in a different culture outside the USA. Parent reports of social skills, behavioral problems, conflict, and children’s social knowledge were collected at baseline, pre-treatment (week-12), post-treatment (week-24) and follow-up (week-36) (treatment group: N = 25, waitlist: N = 20). Relative to waitlist, children’s social knowledge, social skills and conflict resolution were improved at post-treatment and improvement was maintained at follow-up.
