October 19, 2021Symptoms of inattention and irritability uniquely predict an increased likelihood of internalizing disorders, like anxiety and depression, from childhood to adolescence, according to a new study published in the Journal of Attention Disorders1 that examined the dimensions of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) linked to these comorbidities.The study’s authors noted that, while childhood ADHD and ODD are separate risk factors for internalizing problems, unique dimensions of each disorder — like inattention and hyperactivity in ADHD, and irritability and opposition in ODD – differently predict the incidence of these comorbid conditions.
