Aktiivsus- ja tähelepanuhäire sümptomite seos koolirahulolu, depressiivsuse ja ärevusega teismelise eas olevatel koolilastel
The objective of this research is to identify which symptoms have more impact on school satisfaction: inattention/concentration difficulties or hyperactivity/impulsivity, and are there any differences between boys and girls on this point. The representative sample is used in this research – younger cohort children on age 15 from the Research of Estonian Children Personality, Behavior and Health (2004). The measurement instrument is hyperactivity scale (af Klitenberg, 1998), SNAP-IV scale (Swanson, 1995), BDI scale (Beck, 1961), STAI scale (Spielbert et al, 1983) and School Questionnaire (University of Tartu, 1998). Boys suffer more on motor anxiety, inattention and concentration difficulties than girls. The girls reported more symptoms of depression and anxiety which had impact on relations with teachers and peers and marked less general satisfaction. Inattention/concentration difficulties and hyperactivity/impulsivity had significant impact on children´s general satisfaction and relations with teachers, but had no significant impact on relations with peers.
