Young people's experiences of AD/HD

A review of the literature concerning young people's experiences of a diagnosis of AD/HD was conducted. The review first examines the experiences of adults with a diagnoses of mental disorders and the related topics of stigma and labelling are considered; before focussing on the experiences of young people with a diagnosis of AD/HD. The utility and validity of the existing literature is discussed, in addition to future directions for research. This is followed by an empirical paper describing a study examining the experiences of a group of young people with a diagnosis of AD/HD. Ten participants were interviewed and the data gathered were analysed using techniques from Grounded Theory. A model of these experiences, generated from the data, is given. The results of the study are discussed in relation to existing research, the clinical implications thereof, and directions for future research. The limitations of the study are also examined.

Abstract

A review of the literature concerning young people's experiences of a diagnosis of AD/HD was conducted. The review first examines the experiences of adults with a diagnoses of mental disorders and the related topics of stigma and labelling are considered; before focussing on the experiences of young people with a diagnosis of AD/HD. The utility and validity of the existing literature is discussed, in addition to future directions for research. This is followed by an empirical paper describing a study examining the experiences of a group of young people with a diagnosis of AD/HD. Ten participants were interviewed and the data gathered were analysed using techniques from Grounded Theory. A model of these experiences, generated from the data, is given. The results of the study are discussed in relation to existing research, the clinical implications thereof, and directions for future research. The limitations of the study are also examined.
