Psyc 250 Okeke 19 November 2007 Future Study: Girls with ADHD and the Risks of Other Disorders 1. Introduction: Children with ADHD are at significantly higher risk for substance abuse, mood and anxiety disorders, depression, and disruptive behavior. 1 Many of these, however, are misattributed to ADHD when they are actually the result of comorbid disorders. 2 A large problem is that children in the previous studies about ADHD were overwhelmingly male. This study would increase the data gathered on girls with ADHD and gather more accurate results about the increased risks of other disorders that girls with ADHD face. 2. Methods: This is a large-scale study encompassing female youth from all parts and income levels in the United States. With unlimited funds, over 5,000 people were hired for the study research team. Many members of the team were psychiatrists whose job was to separate 10,000 possible subjects with ADHD symptoms from subjects whose symptoms are similar to ADHD, but misdiagnosed. 3 Only the girls with ADHD and no other disorders were allowed into this study.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
