|Adult AD/HD, metamemory, and self-regulation in context
||AD/HD in adulthood is associated with ongoing academic impairments. A metacognitive theoretical framework was used to review the extant literature on cognitive deficits in AD/HD and to construct laboratory measures of metacognitive monitoring and con...
|Parental symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and maternal responsiveness in mother-child interactions : implications for child language functioning
|| "Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is associated with impairment in many domains of a child's daily functioning, including receptive and expressive language skills. Although there is research evidence suggesting that child AD/HD sympt...
|The link between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and oppositional defiant disorder : risk and protective factors
||"Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) has been viewed to be a potential precursor for further behavior problems, particularly Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). Because not every child with AD/HD develops this condition, factors may be ...
|Maternal depression and parenting stress among families of children with AD/HD: child and family correlates
||Research has shown that child and maternal factors contribute to parenting stress and depression among mothers of children with AD/HD. The purpose of the current study was to identify the extent to which maternal cognitive distortions are associated ...
|Risk and protective factors associated with depressive symptomatology in youth with AD/HD
||Youth diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) are at approximately five-times greater risk for developing depression (Angold, Costello, & Erkanli, 1999). In an effort to explain this relationship, both risk and protective fact...
|An examination of the appropriateness of the content of the DSM-IV AD/HD symptom criteria for elementary school girls
||Like many childhood disorders, prevalence rates of AD/HD differ significantly across gender, with male-to-female ratios ranging from 2:1 to 9:1 depending on the sample (APA, 1994). Limited research has been conducted thus far in an effort to better u...
|An Examination of the Effects of Stimulant Medication on the IQ Test Performance of Children with AD/HD
||In general it is thought that children with AD/HD have lower IQs than nonaffected children. However, the variability in research findings has made it difficult to reach an accurate conclusion regarding the intellectual functioning of children with AD...
|AD/HD and adolescent substance use: the impact of subtype, parenting practices, and conduct problems
||Research has consistently demonstrated a link between AD/HD and substance use, abuse, and dependence, although why this increased risk occurs remains unclear. The purpose of the current study was to identify the extent to which negative parenting pra...
|Impairment associated with symptoms of AD/HD, ODD, and mania in adolescence
||Diagnostic confusion surrounding AD/HD, ODD, and bipolar disorder in youth had led to research examining the symptoms that are unique to each condition, as well as symptoms that are shared among the disorders. However, limited research has assessed d...
|Parent factors associated with anxiety in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
||Around 25% of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) have an anxiety disorder (Tannock, 2000), and children with AD/HD are three times more likely than children in the general population to have an anxiety disorder (Angold, Co...

|Fetal growth compromise moderates associations between SNPs within angiogenic and neurotrophic genes and AD/HD symptom severity
||Low birth weight, a form of fetal growth compromise, is a well-established risk factor for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD; Nigg, Nikolas, & Burt, 2010); however, it is unclear how birth weight moderates genetic risk for AD/HD. From a...
|The relationship between maternal depression and child attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
