Children differ in a variety of ways and behave differently in different situations. Amongst various disorders a common form of disorder is "Conduct Disorder". The most important features of these behaviours are the repetitive and persistent pattern. With these behaviours the basic rights of others are violated and major age appropriate social norms or rules are violated. The conduct disordered behaviour falls into four major groupings according to DSM-IV. They are aggressive behaviours that cause physical harm to humans as well as animals; non-aggressive behaviours that cause property loss or damage; deceitfulness or theft and; violation of major rules. The present paper tries to study the attitude of the conduct disordered children towards their academic performance. The study is conducted on 20 children who were diagnosed as having conduct disorder by clinical psychologists. The results show that the conduct disordered children find it difficult to go with the pace of the class and lack certain skills that enable them to live in harmony with the society. It is to be seen that if proper interventions are given to the conduct disordered children particularly in the younger ages, it may help them to be academically better thereby, help them desist from doing anything wrong.

Abstract


Children differ in a variety of ways and behave differently in different situations. Amongst various disorders a common form of disorder is "Conduct Disorder". The most important features of these behaviours are the repetitive and persistent pattern. With these behaviours the basic rights of others are violated and major age appropriate social norms or rules are violated. The conduct disordered behaviour falls into four major groupings according to DSM-IV. They are aggressive behaviours that cause physical harm to humans as well as animals; non-aggressive behaviours that cause property loss or damage; deceitfulness or theft and; violation of major rules. The present paper tries to study the attitude of the conduct disordered children towards their academic performance. The study is conducted on 20 children who were diagnosed as having conduct disorder by clinical psychologists. The results show that the conduct disordered children find it difficult to go with the pace of the class and lack certain skills that enable them to live in harmony with the society. It is to be seen that if proper interventions are given to the conduct disordered children particularly in the younger ages, it may help them to be academically better thereby, help them desist from doing anything wrong.
