Three clinical profiles are indicated, ADHD co-occurring with internalizing disorders (principally parent-reported anxiety disorders) absent any concurrent disruptive disorder (ADHD + ANX), ADHD Co-occurred with ODD/CD but no anxiety (AD HD + ODD /CD), and ADHD with both anxiety and O DD/CD may be sufficiently distinct to warrant classification as ADHD subtypes different from "pure" ADHD with neither comorbidity.
Evidence-Based Psychosocial Treatments for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Self-perceptions of competence in children with ADHD and comparison children.
Examination by comorbidity subgroups revealed that children with ADHD inflated their self-perceptions the most in domains of greatest deficit, and gender effects also are reported.
Do boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder have positive illusory self-concepts?
Examination of discrepancy scores by comorbidity subgroups suggested that aggressive and low-achieving ADHD boys tended to overestimate their competence the most in the domains in which they were the most impaired.
What aspects of peer relationships are impaired in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder?
Results demonstrated that children with ADHD were nominated as nonfriends by children of higher social preference and who were better liked by others, and had fewer dyadic friends than comparison children.
