Attention deficit-hyperactivity symptoms among Palestinian children
AbstractWe aimed to establish the prevalence and distribution of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder [ADHD] symptoms and other associated comorbid mental health problems in Palestinian schoolchildren Thus 349 children aged 6-15 years were randomly selected from 23 schools in Gaza and the West Bank and were rated by their parents and teachers using both the ADHD DSM-IV Checklist and the Strengths and the Difficulties Questionnaire, which also measures conduct and emotional problems. There was a significant agreement between parents and teachers, with 4.3% of the children rated above the established cut-off scores on both the parent and teacher DSM-IV Checklist. Male gender, family size and living in an area of socioeconomic deprivation were independently associated with ADHD symptoms
