Annotation: The authors studied official arrests from childhood through adolescence in two groups of boys; one group (N=110) was diagnosed in childhood as suffering from attention deficit disorder (ADD), and the second group (N=88) consisted of normal control adolescents.
Abstract: Rates of single and multiple serious offenses and of institutionalization for delinquency were significantly higher in the ADD subjects. These findings suggest a strong relationship between childhood ADD and later arrests for delinquent behavior. (Publisher abstract)
Index Term(s): Male juvenile delinquents; Nonbehavioral correlates of crime
