Abstract

The psychometrically defined construct of social disability may identify children with ADHD who are at very high risk for severe social dysfunction and whose course and prognosis may vary from those of other children with ADHD. This subgroup of children with ADHD may be at heightened risk for poor outcome, and their identification may facilitate the development of clinical interventions aimed at ameliorating their specific difficulties.
