dc.description.abstractSocioemotional factors may greatly contribute to the way a child learns and interacts with their environment. Early elementary school has proven to be a significant period of development for foundational reading skills. For children of color, specifically Latino students, there are few studies that examine the relationship between sociodemographic variables such as ethnicity and gender, with challenging behaviors such as inattention and hyperactivity. This interaction is evaluated using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) in order to gauge the impact on reading achievement. Additionally, these relationships are explored with a cohort of Latino students (n=89) to determine whether Latino children are adequately rated for the presentation of inattentive and or hyperactive behaviors. This study then explores these interactions further with a diverse cohort of Latino, Black, Asian, and White students (n=274) and aims to discuss the implications for educational outcomes and development. Of particular interest, is the exploration of the achievement gap between children of different backgrounds as early elementary school may provide a critical window of intervention.en_US
