The co-occurrence of reading disorder (RD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has received increasing attention. This review summarizes the epidemiology, treatment strategies, psychosocial impact, and economic burden associated with the co-occurrence of these conditions. Common genetic and neuropsychological deficits may partially explain the high degree of overlap between RD and ADHD. Children who face the additive problems of both disorders are at greater risk for academic…

Co-morbidities in Chinese children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and reading disabilities.

The findings indicated that children with RD and/or ADHD symptom(s) exhibited diverse cognitive profiles, and the distinguishing factor contributed to different inhibitions, which should be considered in the diagnosis of either RD or ADHD and their remediation design.

Chapter 5 Comorbid Conditions in Child and Adolescent Patients Diagnosed with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder

The presence of psychiatric comorbidities complicates the diagnosis, treat‐ ment, and prognosis of ADHD; thus, diagnosis ofComorbidity is of great importance and should be investigated in cases diagnosed with ADHD before treatment planning.

ADHD and ASD are both associated with social cognition and literacy deficits in childhood. Although ADHD and ASD are highly comorbid conditions, few studies have sought to examine to the role that

Academic outcomes of children diagnosed with secondary attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder following stroke in comparison to children with stroke-only and children with developmental ADHD are examined, and potential predictors of progress in these groups are explored.

It is proposed that studying the functional anatomy of disordered executive control and reading‐related skills using carefully selected paradigms, coupled with rigorous studies of intervention efficacy, provide the most promising avenue for ameliorating these two commonly encountered impediments to learning.

Comorbidity of Reading Disability and Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder

The hyperactive and impulsive behaviors exhibited by boys with RD may be more disruptive than the inattentive behavior exhibited by girls and may therefore precipitate more frequent referrals for clinical attention.

This study challenges the importance of behavioral inhibition deficits in ADHD and that naming deficits are specific to RD and further investigation into cognitive deficits in these groups is required.
