ADHD Symptoms Mark Poor Prognosis for Female Juvenile Offenders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

We tested whether symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) predicted poor young-adult outcomes for incarcerated female adolescents (N=141). In adolescence (M age=16.7), 40% of the sample met diagnostic criteria for ADHD; 86.9% for conduct disorder (CD). ADHD symptoms predicted externalizing and internalizing psychopathology, mental health impairment, and self-reported offending at a 2-year community follow-up (M age=18.9; N=102). ADHD symptoms incrementally predicted externalizing psychopathology, above and beyond CD symptoms and family background factors. ADHD symptoms imply a poor prognosis for incarcerated females during the transition to adulthood; thus, targeted assessments of ADHD symptoms may assist clinicians with wise allocation of treatment resources.
