Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood.
ADHD has a negative impact on the quality of life of children and families. Children with ADHD often present social skills difficulties. It has been argued that social skills difficulties in children with ADHD may stem from low sensitivity to others’ emotions (especially anger). Research has supported that the ability to recognise emotional expressions is impaired in some children with ADHD. Most studies have examined facial emotion recognition, and little is known about emotion recognition from vocal expressions in children with ADHD. In addition, little is known on the brain correlates of vocal anger processing in children with ADHD.
In the current talk I will present empirical evidence from behavioural and brain-based studies that support the argument of atypical anger processing in ADHD. I will discuss the implications of these findings for clinical practice with children and young people, with particular emphasis on implications for primary care.
