ABSTRACT

Recent studies has focused on the negative and clinical aspects of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as the prevalence of ADHD is increasing. Some studies report that children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are more creative more successful than normal children. Therefore this paper is to explore if there is any difference between the parents-children relationships of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and the parents-children relationships of their counterparts, thus if there exists any difference between adaptive behaviors of the two groups. The 101 subjects are normal children who are of above average intelligence level and between third grade and sixth grade. The used instruments are Furman(1985)'s Network of Relationship Inventory(NRI) and Lim Jung-Soon's School Behavior Test. To compare children with ADHD and their counterparts, T-test ANOVA is employed. The results are as follows. First, the study shows that there exists no significant statistical difference children with ADHD and their counterparts in social support, punishment/dominance, closeness, conflict, friendship. Second, there is no significant statistical difference between two groups in friendship, school learning, school behaviors, but children with ADHD are not likely to have good relationships with their teachers. The positive resources of children with ADHD shouldn't be neglected due to disability label. This study seems to provide the foundation for the development of effective programs that can help successful adaptation.
