Auditory Temporal Processing in Children With Specific Reading Disability With and Without Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder
- Separating Genuine Cases of Reading Disability From Reading Deficits Caused by Predominantly Inattentive ADHD Behavior. Aaron, P.G.; Joshi, R.M.; Palmer, Hyyon; Smith, Natasha; Kirby, Edward // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Sep/Oct2002, Vol. 35 Issue 5, p425
Conventional methods of differentiating reading disability (RD) caused by deficits in decoding skills or comprehension from poor reading performance caused by inconsistent attention associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have produced equivocal results. This study...
- Information Processing Deficits in Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Inattentive Type, and Children with Reading Disability. Weiler, Michael David; Bernstein, Jane Holmes; Bellinger, David; Waber, Deborah P. // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Sep/Oct2002, Vol. 35 Issue 5, p448
We examined the information processing capabilities of children diagnosed with the inattentive subtype of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who had been characterized as having a sluggish cognitive tempo. Children referred for school-related problems (n = 81) and nonreferred...
- Cognitive Deficits in Reading Disability and Attention Deficit Disorder. Felton, Rebecca H.; Wood, Frank B. // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Jan1989, Vol. 22 Issue 1
Studies cognitive deficits in reading disability and attention deficit disorder. Developmental levels, definitions and subtypes of reading disabilities; Measures of naming and phonological awareness.
- LEARNING DISABILITIES. Samuels, Christina A. // Education Week;10/20/2010, Vol. 30 Issue 8, p4
The article discusses a study done in Minnesota showing that children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have a much higher likelihood of having reading disabilities as well, and the study proposes that all children with ADHD should be tested for reading disabilities.
- Sex and Group Differences in Reading and Attention Disordered Children with and without Hyperkinesis. Ackerman, Peggy T.; Dykman, Roscoe A.; Ogiesby, D. Michael // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Aug/Sep1983, Vol. 16 Issue 7
Examines the differences in children with reading disability and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Comparison of factors attributed to sex differences in behavior and learning ability; Calculation of Sequential Memory scores.
- The Genetic Association Between ADHD Symptoms and Reading Difficulties: The Role of Inattentiveness and IQ. Paloyelis, Yannis; Rijsdijk, Fruhling; Wood, Alexis C.; Asherson, Philip; Kuntsi, Jonna // Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology;Nov2010, Vol. 38 Issue 8, p1083
Previous studies have documented the primarily genetic aetiology for the stronger phenotypic covariance between reading disability and ADHD inattention symptoms, compared to hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms. In this study, we examined to what extent this covariation could be attributed to...
- Comorbidity of reading disability and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Differences by ... Willcutt, Erik G.; Pennington, Bruce F. // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Mar/Apr2000, Vol. 33 Issue 2, p179
This study used a community sample of 494 twins with a reading disability (223 girls, 271 boys) and 373 twins without a reading disability (189 girls, 184 boys) to assess the relation between reading disability (RD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Symptoms of DSM-III and...
- EEG Analysis of Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Comorbid Reading Disabilities. Clarke, Adam R.; Barry, Robert J.; McCarthy, Rory; Selikowitz, Mark // Journal of Learning Disabilities;May/Jun2002, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p276
This study investigated electroencephalographic differences between two groups of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, combined type, with reading disabilities (ADHD + RD) or without (ADHD) and typical control participants. Twenty participants were included in each group. All...
- Using environmental distractors in the diagnosis of ADHD. Cassuto, Hanoch; Ben-Simon, Anat; Berger, Itai // Frontiers in Human Neuroscience;Nov2013, Vol. 7, p1
This study examined the effect of the incorporation of environmental distractors in computerized continuous performance test (CPT) on the ability of the test in distinguishing ADHD from non-ADHD children. It was hypothesized that children with ADHD would display more distractibility than...
