Academic Underachievement, Attention Deficits, and Aggression: Comorbidity and Implications for Intervention.
Hinshaw, Stephen P.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n6 p893-903 Dec 1992
Notes that, although comorbidity with specific learning disabilities is less frequent than commonly reported, externalizing behavior disorders, particularly attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, often overlap with various indices of academic underachievement during childhood. Discusses issues surrounding multimodality treatment programs and potential for long-term interventions to break cycles of school failure and externalizing behavior. (Author/NB)
