ADHD Symptomatology and Adjustment to College in China and the United States
Norvilitis, Jill M.; Sun, Ling; Zhang, Jie
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v43 n1 p86-94 2010
This study examined ADHD symptomatology and college adjustment in 420 participants--147 from the United States and 273 from China. It was hypothesized that higher levels of ADHD symptoms in general and the inattentive symptom group in particular would be related to decreased academic and social adjustment, career decision-making self-efficacy, and poorer study skills in both countries. Results generally supported the hypotheses, indicating that the difficulties associated with inattention are cross-cultural and not specific to the United States. (Contains 4 tables.)
