Children With ADHD At Risk of Externalising Behaviors in Adulthood

Parent Interventions

Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may show externalising behaviors when they reach adulthood, according to a new research study.

Externalising behaviors are normally in the form of teasing, losing temper, threatening and arguing and screaming. The study was based on assessment of 7,674 people in the age group of 18-32 based on self-reported retrospective behavior in childhood. Previous history of ADHD had an impact on the psychosocial processes which could predict externalising behavior in adult hood.

The study underscores the need to provide a supporting environment at school and home to minimise the possibility of externalising behaviors developing in adulthood.
