The present study examined the latent profiles of child, parent, and teacher ratings of child depression symptoms in a sample of children with ADHD Symptomology. The study attempted to identify patterns of agreement and discrepancies among raters and correlates of these patterns. Five classes best described the ratings: No Depression, Parent/Child Moderate Depression, Severe Depression, Teacher/Parent Moderate Depression, and Mixed Severe Depression. Predictors of class membership including social functioning and maternal depression confirmed the distinctiveness of classes. Latent profiles of ratings of depression ratings were also generated for a sample without ADHD symptoms as a basis for comparison. Implications for identifying and intervening on depression symptoms in children with ADHD are discussed.
