Youngsters With AD/HD May Experience More Problems Socializing With Their Peers

HealthDay (12/17, Haelle) reports, “Young children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) may experience more problems socializing with their peers, which can then contribute to worsening symptoms,” a study of nearly 1,000 youngsters suggests. When investigators “compared the children’s symptoms and social interactions at ages four, six and eight, they found that kids with the most severe AD/HD symptoms also experienced the most rejection from their classmates.”
