ADHD in children linked to disorders, lower academic, social performance

October 7, 2014

Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder had more academic difficulty, peer problems and comorbid disorders than those without the disorder, according to recent data.

Researchers from the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, and colleagues examined the records of 391 Australian children aged 6 to 8 years. Participants not already diagnosed with ADHD were screened through reports submitted by parents and teachers, resulting in one group of children with ADHD (n=179) and another without (n=212).
