Abstract The present investigation assesses situational variation in problem behaviors of children with Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity. Principal-component factors (VARIMAX rotation) were computed for die Home/School Situations Questionnaires (HSQ/SSQ). For the HSQ, tour factors (emerged, accounting for 61% of variance. For the Social three factors emerged, accounting for 68% of variance. Factors were similar to those previously derived with non-referred children. To assess discriminative power, factors were, compared (t-tests) to previous data. All factors significantly discriminated ADD/H from non-referred children. These data surest the factors add lo the utility of the HSQ/SSQ in assessing ADD/H.
