The developmental stability of poor math skill was studied in 31 young adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus (SBH), a neurodevelopmental disorder involving malformations of the brain and spinal cord. Longitudinally, individuals with poor math problem solving as children grew into adults with poor problem solving and limited functional numeracy. As a group, young adults with SBH had poor computation accuracy, computation speed, problem solving, and functional numeracy. Computation accuracy… Expand
Mathematical development in spina bifida.
TLDR
An overview of math and its cognitive correlates in preschoolers, school-age children and adults with SB is presented including the findings from a longitudinal study linking early executive functions in infancy to the development of later preschool and school age math skills. Expand
Reading and writing skills in young adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus
TLDR
Writing, but not reading, was related to highest level of education achieved and writing fluency predicted several aspects of functional independence, consistent with cognitive models of reading and writing. Expand
Arithmetic Processing in Children With Spina Bifida
TLDR
Three studies compared 98 children with spina bifida myelomeningocele to 94 typically developing children on multidigit subtraction and cognitive addition tasks to find deficits in accuracy, speed, and strategy-use in single-digit addition characterized groups with math disability regardless of reading status. Expand
Prospective, declarative, and nondeclarative memory in young adults with spina bifida
TLDR
Memory status was positively correlated with functional independence, an important component of quality of life, and working memory was intact with low maintenance and manipulation requirements, but impaired on tasks demanding high information maintenance or manipulation load. Expand
Mathematics skills in good readers with hydrocephalus
TLDR
Computation deficits in children with hydrocephalus reflect delayed development of procedural knowledge, and problems in specific math domains such as geometry and applied math, were associated with deficits in constituent cognitive skills such as visual spatial competence, memory, and general knowledge. Expand
Cognitive deficits in spina bifida
Spina bifida myelomeningocele (SBM) is the most common and severe type of spina bifida which is a neural tube defect (NTD). Additionally to the defect of the spinal cord most cases of SBM develop anExpand

TLDR
Children with spina bifida myelomeningocele exhibited more problems than both published norms and a local comparison group of healthy children in metacognition but not behavior regulation, and these problems were predicted by parent psychological distress. Expand
Prospective memory in adults with spina bifida
TLDR
Prospective memory was impaired in both older and younger individuals with spina bifida meningomyelocele, however, the percentage of individuals with impaired or poor prospective memory was three times higher in the older S BM group than in the younger SBM group. Expand
Intellectual characteristics using WISC-IV in children with myelomeningocele
Abstract Purpose: Children with spina bifida are known to have various intellectual characteristics, including nonverbal learning disabilities due to hydrocephalus. While intelligence tests canExpand
Neuropsychological profile of young adults with spina bifida with or without hydrocephalus
TLDR
The neuropsychological profile of patients with hydrocephalus is one of relative impairment and this is so whether or not spina bifida is present, and in spina Bifida alone, in the absence of Hydrocephalus, cognitive function is relatively spared. Expand

TLDR
Results of a longitudinal study of 56 children with congenital neurological disease myelomeningocele show that mental retardation was not greater than in groups of children selected for treatment according to a criterion. Expand
Neuropsychologic and Adaptive Functioning in Adolescents and Young Adults Shunted for Congenital Hydrocephalus
TLDR
The results suggest that shunted congenital hydrocephalus is not characterized by nonverbal learning disabilities syndrome in adolescence or in adulthood, and no discrepancies between Wechsler Performance IQ or Verbal IQ in either hydrocephalic group. Expand
Intelligence and achievement in children with myelomeningocele.
TLDR
Intelligence and achievement test scores for 89 children with myelomeningocele, ages 4 to 14 years, were obtained from medical records and it is speculated that these findings may reflect a developmental difference between MM children and nonhandicapped children in a visual-perceptual-organizational cognitive function such as Rourke (1987).

TLDR
The data show that developmental as well as acquired lesions of the cerebellum disrupt motor speech, and add to the developmental role of the Cerebellum in the automatization of motor skills, including speech. Expand

Adolescents with myelodysplasia: impact of physical disability on emotional maturation.
TLDR
Lack of appropriate chores, decreased opportunities to interact and compete with peers, plus uncertainties about bowel and bladder continence appear to be the greatest impediments to emotional growth in this physically handicapped group of teenagers. Expand
Language of hydrocephalic children and adolescents.
TLDR
The results revealed a limited resilience of language to the effects of early hydrocephalus, and hydrocephalics were either less skilled or less able to maintain age-appropriate skill mastery than normal peers within particular language domains. Expand
