In this paper, we consider the domain of executive functions (EFs) and their possible role in developmental psychopathologies. We first consider general theoretical and measurement issues involved in studying EFs and then review studies of EFs in four developmental psychopathologies: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder (CD), autism, and Tourette syndrome (TS). Our review reveals that EF deficits are consistently found in both ADHD and autism but not in CD (without… 
A review of executive function deficits in autism spectrum disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Findings from this review suggest that the ASD + ADHD group appears to share impairment in both flexibility and planning with the ASD group, while it shares the response inhibition deficit with the ADHD group.
How specific are executive functioning deficits in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism?
TLDR
It is indicated that children with HFA exhibit more generalised and profound problems with EF tasks compared to children with ADHD.
Metacognitive and emotional/motivational executive functions in individuals with autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: preliminary results.
TLDR
A large overlapping of EF dysfunctions in ASD and ADHD was showed and were not indicative of the presence of two real distinct EF profiles, Nevertheless, in ADHD, a more severe deficit in prepotent response inhibition (emotional/motivational EF) was found.
Chapter 8 Cognitive Function in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
It is suggested that ADHD-I and ADHD-C children had similar profiles of cognitive impairment, and the deficits in cognition are not good markers for the classification of ADHD subtypes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V).
Cognitive Function in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
It is suggested that ADHD-I and ADHD-C children had similar profiles of cognitive impairment, and the deficits in cognition are not good markers for the classification of ADHD subtypes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V).
Deficits in theory of mind and Executive function in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
This study was designed to examine the existence of deficits theory of mind (ToM) and Executive function(EF) in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).Tom and EF functioning
Executive Functions in Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Comorbidity Overlaps Between Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder and Specific Learning Disorders
TLDR
The results showed that all children in the clinical samples exhibited impairments on EF measures (inhibition and shifting tasks) when compared with TD children, whereas children with ADHD and those with SLD in comorbidity with ADHD, had the worst performance in visuospatial updating.

A Comparison of Neuropsychological Test Profiles of Children with Attention Deficit—Hyperactivity Disorder and/or Learning Disorder
TLDR
All groups exhibited impaired performance in tasks of visual-motor precision and name retrieval, but the latter finding may involve two different mechanisms, one related to linguistic impairment and possibly contributing to reading and spelling problems, and the other related to attentional problems.
Contrasting Cognitive Deficits in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder versus Reading Disability.
We compared 2 common and sometimes comorbid developmental disorders, reading disability (RD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), in 2 cognitive domains, phonological processes (PP)
A longitudinal study of executive function and theory of mind development in autism
Abstract Both executive function and theory of mind impairment have been suggested as primary deficits of autism. One test of the primacy of a deficit is its persistence and stability throughout
Frontal lobe functions in attention deficit disorder with and without hyperactivity: A review and research report
TLDR
While both types of ADD share some apparent similarities in deficits on a few frontal lobe tests in this study, the totality of existing findings suggests an additional problem with perceptual-motor speed and processing in the ADD/-H group.

The attentional and behavioral functioning of children diagnosed as hyperactive (ADHD), learning-disabled (LD), and hyperactive/learning-disabled were compared, using standardized behavior rating
Intact and impaired memory functions in autism.
TLDR
The group with autism performed significantly worse than comparison subjects on measures of temporal order memory, source memory, supraspan free recall, working memory, and EF, but not on short- and long-term recognition, cued recall, or new learning ability, consistent with the predictions of the EF theory.

TLDR
A theoretical model that links inhibition to 4 executive neuropsychological functions that appear to depend on it for their effective execution is constructed and finds it to be strongest for deficits in behavioral inhibition, working memory, regulation of motivation, and motor control in those with ADHD.
Frontal lobe functioning in boys with attention‐deficit hyperactivity disorder
Prior attempts to relate attention‐deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to frontal lobe dysfunction have yielded mixed results. The present study attempted to minimize several methodological

TLDR
Whether children with Asperger's Syndrome have similar neurocognitive deficits compared to nonretarded, or high-functioning autistic children; and whether the essential cognitive deficit among these children is in language or abstract problem solving are examined.
