Logistic regression analyses showing odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) and p-values relative to controls (n = 106) between joint attention measures and case–control status, including overall case status and diagnostic subgroups

Disruptive behaviour disorders (any ADHD + any oppositional-conduct disorder) 32 1.3 (0.9, 1.9) p = 0.156 1.0 (0.7, 1.6) p = 0.900 0.7 (0.5, 1.1) p = 0.132
Any ADHD disorder 15 1.1 (0.6, 1.7) p = 0.719 0.9 (0.5, 1.6) p = 0.820 0.6 (0.4, 1.1) p = 0.095
Any oppositional-conduct disorder 24 1.5 (1.0, 2.3) p = 0.041 1.1 (0.7, 1.8) p = 0.699 0.8 (0.5, 1.2) p = 0.259
Pervasive development disorder 5 1.2 (0.4, 2.0) p = 0.655 0.6 (0.2, 1.6) p = 0.328 1.6 (0.5, 6.9) p = 0.438
Any emotional disorder 24 1.3 (0.8, 1.9) p = 0.217 1.2 (0.7, 2.2) p = 0.495 0.9 (0.5, 1.7) p = 0.761

All models were adjusted for sex and potential confounders (see main text for details). To aid interpretation, odds ratios have been scaled to represent the increase in the odds of being a case associated with a 1 SD increase in each joint attention measure.
