GENDER DIFFERENCES IN LEARNING AND ADJUSTMENT PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL: Results of a Longitudinal Study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Results of a community study suggest that boys entering school had more problems with aggression and information processing than did girls. Later differences in learning and adjustment largely reflected the high proportion of boys among children receiving psychological services. Girls who received psychological services were less likely than boys to get special education help. 1984 American Orthopsychiatric Association
