INTRODUCTION Several studies have found neuropsychological and behavioral disorders in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which have been explained as an executive dysfunction. OBJECTIVE To describe and compare children with ADHD and a control group. PATIENTS AND METHODS 79 seven to eleven-year-old children were selected and grouped according to ADHD DSM IV criteria and the T scores on a ADHD checklist. They were classified as predominantly inattentive (n=19…

Executive dysfunction screening and intelectual coefficient measurement in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The results showed that screening of EF alteration in children with ADHD is easy and rapid by means of certain P-IQ determination sub-scales of the WISC test; moreover, complementary IQ determination can be measured simultaneously.
Omnidirectional robot for the diagnosis of the attention deficit
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) occurs in 16% of the Colombian student population and estimates that between 30-70% of these children continue to show symptoms in adulthood. Thus, a


Prevalence of ADHD did not show differences by socioeconomic status (SES), in contrast to mild mental retardation in which BIF and DCD were significantly more frequent in the lower SES.
Differential Patterns of Executive Function in Children With Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder According to Gender and Subtype
The absence of diagnosed comorbidity in the children with ADHD at the time of test administration demonstrates that the impairments in executive function are clearly located in ADHD, particularly in the ADHD combined subtype, thus providing support for Barkley's proposed unifying theory of ADHD.
Executive dysfunctions in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Results are interpreted as supporting the hypothesis of executive dysfunction in children with ADHD.
A Comparison of the Neuropsychological Profiles of the DSM-IV Subtypes of ADHD
The results do not support distinct neuropsychological deficits in ADHD-IA and ADHD-C children, and suggest that symptoms of inattention, rather than symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity, are associated with neuroPsychological impairment.
Neuropsychological executive functions and DSM-IV ADHD subtypes.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and compare a focused set of component neuropsychological executive functions in the DSM-IV attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder combined (ADHD-C) and inattentive (ADHD-I)

Psychiatric comorbidity and functioning in clinically referred preschool children and school-age youths with ADHD.
Despite being significantly younger, clinically referred preschool children with ADHD are reminiscent of school-age youths with ADHD in the quality of ADHD, high rates of comorbid psychopathology, and impaired functioning.
Predictive power of frontal lobe tests in the diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
It is concluded that while these neuropsychological tests may have some value in clinical evaluations of children's psychological abilities, they may not be useful as the sole criteria for the diagnostic classification of children as ADHD.
Neurobehavioral Assessment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in a Colombian Sample
It is concluded that the CPRS and the CTRS Spanish versions, when used by Colombian children and adolescents, do not seem to evaluate exactly the same underlying behavioral dimensions.
How common is attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder? Incidence in a population-based birth cohort in Rochester, Minn.
These results provide insight into the apparent discrepancies in estimates of the occurrence of AD/HD, with less stringent criteria resulting in higher cumulative incidence.
