Abstract

Assessed a large cohort of 11-18 yr old females with Turner syndrome (TS)-a condition associated with short stature-to determine academic achievement and social, behavioral, and emotional adjustment based on a comprehensive assessment involving self reports and parent and teacher reports. Measures included the Child Behavior Checklist, the Youth Self Report, and a Teacher Report Form. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved) Findings indicate that a large number of these adolescent girls with TS had psychological adjustment problems including somatic symptoms, anxiety, and social immaturity. The research suggests that girls with TS are in need of interventions that are informed by a comprehensive understanding of their quality of life, including the cognitive deficits associated with this condition.
