Abstract

In an earlier study of an epidemiologically defined sample of first grade children, primarily between the ages of 5 and 6, self-reported anxious symptoms proved relatively stable and were significandy related to adaptive functioning. In the present study we follow that cohort of first graders longitudinally and assess the prognostic value of self-reports of anxious symptoms in first grade with respect to anxious symptoms and adaptive functioning in the late elementary school years or at about age 10. First grade anxious symptoms were found to have significant prognostic value in terms of levels of anxious symptoms and adaptive functioning in fifth grade.
