About 30 students with ADHD (15 boys and 15 girls) and 30 normal students (15 boys and 15 girls) were selected by multi-stage cluster sampling method. Data were collected through Conners’s questionnaire, Raven IQ test, social skills Matson, Impatience Farmer & Sundberg and Child Sleep Habits Questionnaire. The data were analyzed through the multiple analyses of variance (MANOVA).

Results: The results of multivariate analysis of variance showed statistically meaningful difference in social skills, impatience, and sleep problems among students with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and normal students.
