The prevalence of learning disabilities in a sample of children considered hyperactive

, : The prevalence of learning disabilities in a sample of children considered hyperactive. Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology 8(1): 33-50

The extent of learning disabilities in a population of hyperactive children and a group of control subjects was studied. Of the hyperactive subjects who are achieving below grade level, 42.6% would be eligible on objective criteria for learning disabilities that involve computing differences between ability and achievement measures and applying a test of significance to them. A very large number (53% using the 0.05 level of significance for the criteria) of hyperactive children are, by the criteria used, underperforming, even if actually achieving at or above average. Perhaps an even more interesting and unexpected outcome was the finding that there were similar prevalence rates for male and female hyperactive subjects and for the control subjects. Even though they are underrepresented in special education programs, girls are almost as likely as boys to have serious discrepancies between ability and achievement.
