The following study aims to identify statistically significant differences between adolescent students with and without Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity (ADHD) in emotional intelligence skills. The study sample was composed of 44 students with ADHD diagnosis and 192 students without ADHD; both groups were obtained by an intentional process. The participants were evaluated with the Emotional Intelligence Inventory of BarOn ICE: NA, Peruvian adaptation and standardization (Ugarriza & Pajares, 2003). The results showed that there are statistically significant differences in intrapersonal skills (U = 3306.50, z = -2.25, p = 0.024, r = -0.15) and positive impression (U = 3369.00, z = -2.10, p = 0.036, r = -0.14) of emotional intelligence between students with ADHD and students without ADHD. Thus, the first group got higher scores than the second one in both aspects.
