Still, there is generally a tendency in longitudinal clinical research for more individuals with poorer outcomes to be lost to follow-up. The authors have observed, however, that a proportion of the probands who declined follow-up indicated that they were doing well and were declining to participate because they did not want to be reminded of their previous problems. Thus, it appears that a proportion of the probands lost to follow-up might have represented high-functioning individuals, which might have mitigated against the tendency for low- functioning individuals to be over- represented among those lost to follow-up.
In other areas, impairment evolved, and the areas of most significant impairment often coevolved with changing life priorities. In childhood (at baseline), hyperactivity and behavioral problems were the chief complaints. In adolescence, academic functioning appeared to be the most striking impairment, which is consistent with education being a major developmental goal at this stage. In late adolescence to young adulthood, hyperactive probands continued to have lower educational achievement and attainment, but some were working and performing at work as well as controls.
Finally, probands continued to rate themselves more negatively than controls on the California Psychological Inventory, which measures self- esteem and social integration, and the difference between probands and controls was more pronounced than at 10-year follow-up (although self- ratings became more positive for both groups). The relative worsening of social functioning in probands was also evident on the social skills measure: probands’ social skills now fell short not only in the area of social interactions, but also in the areas of job interviews and assertion (Weiss & Hechtman, 1993).
