Visuo-spatial Attention in ADHD Children: Investigating the Asymmetry
Abstract:
Objectives
The purpose of the present study was comparing visuo-spatial attention between children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder-Inattentive (ADHD-I) type and normal children. Method and Material: In this cross-sectional study fifteen (7-10 years of age) children were classified with ADHD-I type and 15 normal children were matched for age, sex, and IQ. They were selected trough simple random sampling. Measurement tools were Wechsler Intelligence Scale for children 4th edition (WISC-IV), the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory and the Star Cancellation Test.
Results
The results suggest that there is no significant difference between ADHD-I and normal children from the visuo-spatial standpoint (p>0/05). But three ADHD-I children exhibited signs of unilateral neglect.
Discussion
Although, in this study the visuo-spatial attention was not different between ADHD-I group and normal group, considering this form of attention as an item in assessment and therapeutic interventions should not be neglected.
