The study also compares boys and girls. The results on WISC-III are generally low or very low and the results on Jag tycker jag är are average for boys and below average for girls. The results show no gender differences in intelligence, but in self-report, girls... (More)

The results show no gender differences in intelligence, but in self-report, girls report significantly poorer than boys. The ADAD-variable school problems seem to interact with intelligence and the ADAD-variables foster care, physical/mental abuse, attitude towards school, mental and emotional problems and symptoms of mental illness seem to influence self-report.
