Peer Functioning in Children with AD/HD: A Review of Current Understanding and Intervention Options
Ozdemir, Selda
Current Issues in Education, v12 n10 2009
This review critically evaluates the existing research literature on the peer relationship problems of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Empirical evidence suggests that children with the disorder are severely impaired in the social area and strongly rejected by peers. The purposes of this article are to provide a review of key contributing factors to the peer relationship problems of children with AD/HD and to outline intervention options that have been supported as beneficial for children with the disorder. Finally, the article provides a framework to understand and address the complex social problems of children with the AD/HD.
