INTRODUCTION Attention deficit disorder shows both cognitive and behavioral patterns. OBJECTIVE To determine a particular PASS (planning, attention, successive and simultaneous) pattern in order to early diagnosis and remediation according to PASS theory. PATIENTS AND METHODS 80 patients were selected from the neuropediatric attendance, aged 6 to 12(More)
