The Effects of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder on the Development of a Child Dealing with Grief, Loss, and Major Negative Life Changes

Tochukwu Fabian Ilione (PhD) and Michael Promise Ogolodom (PhD)*

The paper explores the effect of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in children and adolescents who suffer from negative changes in their life due to the loss of a family member or bullying cases. The research to investigate this stance has used qualitative thematic analysis on five case studies that are primarily gathered from a local community. The case studies are of five participants, and each of them was either at home, school or with their family. The research results through a qualitative analysis of interviews have proven that family helps these patients become better-behaved and emotionally stable as they live in a protected environment where all their family members support them. Hence, the researchers have provided qualitative evidence that the familial care environment of ADHD patients, while secluded environments like home and school make the patients feel stressed and uncomfortable.
