The Developmental Course of Childhood Inattention Symptoms Uniquely Predicts Educational Attainment: A 16-year Longitudinal Study

Jean-Baptiste Pingault et al. Psychiatry Res.

Abstract

In this 16-year longitudinal study, a new trajectory estimation approach was used to verify whether the developmental course of childhood inattention significantly predicted functional impairment. A rising childhood inattention trajectory significantly predicted graduation failure (OR: 1.76 [1.32-2.34]) independently of averaged inattention levels. Rising inattention is, in itself, important for prognosis.
