PARENTING STYLES AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS ON ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER IN CHILDREN: A MODERATIONAL MODEL By: Taylor Perlman ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th edition.; American Psychiatric Association, 2013) developing persistent patterns of inattention and/or hyperactivityimpulsivity that interferes with daily functioning (APA, 2013).

Severity: Mild Moderate Severe Presentation types: Combined Predominantly inattentive Predominantly hyperactive/ impulsive ADHD SEVERITY AND PRESENTATIONS The inattention type- 6 or more of the following symptoms: failing to pay close attention to detail

difficulty sustaining attention having a hard time listening when spoken to failing to follow instructions avoiding tasks that require sustained attention becoming easily distracted by extraneous stimuli losing things necessary for the task forgetting to do daily activities These symptoms must have been present prior to the age of 12 and for at least six months to meet criteria (APA, 2013) PARENTING STYLES AUTHORITATIVE:

Warm, encouraging, supportive- high levels of acceptance AUTHORITARIAN: Psychologically demanding, controlling children with low self esteem PERMISSIVE: Little control over children, avoid confrontation children without emotional regulation UNINVOLVED: Neglectful and rejecting issues relating to others and performing in daily tasks (Kimble, 2009)

SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS SES- social class of an individual involving combination of their occupation, education, and income (APA) Low SES Studies show that children with parents who have fewer educational qualifications are 1.91 times more likely to develop ADHD Lack of resources, low opportunities, little services HYPOTHESIS The interaction between maladaptive parenting styles and low socioeconomic status can predict the severity of self-reported ADHD- Inattentive type among children.

PARTICIPANTS 300 children 53% female, 47% male 68% Caucasian, 22% African American, 7% Asian, 3% other Age range: 8-12 ((M = 10 years; SD = 1.4) 18% 3rd grade, 21% 4th grade, 13% 5th grade, 24% 6th grade, 24% in 7th grade (M = 5th grade; SD = 1.7) Low to high- class families Annual Income: $35,000 to $450,000 (M = $120,000; SD = $49,000) Long Island, New York All parents were heterosexual and living in the same home as the child

ADHDINATTENTIV E TYPE RESULTS: SIGNIFICANT There was a significant interaction effect between the two independent variables on the dependent variable 1-way ANCOVA analysis results are significant at p < .05 Socioeconomic status is a moderator between parenting styles and ADHD among children RESULTS: INSIGNIFICANT Socioeconomic status was not a moderating variable

between parenting style and ADHD- Inattentive Type Interaction between the two independent variables were not necessary when predicting the dependent variable This suggests that regardless of income, if positive parenting styles were not practiced in the home, severity of inattentive ADHD are likely to increase LIMITATIONS The scale only looks at Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Permissive parenting styles but neglects Uninvolved Parenting Styles Self report questionnaires can be difficult to trust due to the biases of the parents and their children

This study focused on children living in Long Island, NY with heterosexual parents FUTURE RECOMMENDATIONS Observe the parents and their interaction with their children to limit potential inaccurate data collection Improve parenting by: teaching behavioral training
