Attention deficit and learning disabilities (ADHD/LD) among high school pupils in Holon (Israel)



Attention deficit and learning disabilities (ADHD/LD) among high school pupils in Holon (Israel)



Patient Education and Counseling 58(2): 164-167



Five hundred forty-three students participated in the study. The prevalence of ADHD according to criteria of DSM-4 among them was 15.2%, including three subgroups: ADHD (inattentive)- 9.7%, combined- 4.5%, and ADHD-hyperactivity-impulsivity (HI)- 1%. The prevalence of learning disability (LD) was 17.6%. The gender ratio in both groups (ADHD and LD) was equal. These pupils had lower academic achievements with lower marks. The prevalence of ADHD/LD found in the present study in Israel is in a higher range of those reported in the literature. We should remember that ADHD/LD is a neuro-behavioral disability and these children and adolescents need an early educational correcting program at home and at school.
