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… Expand
Co-morbidities in Chinese children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and reading disabilities.
TLDR
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. Expand
Chapter 5 Comorbid Conditions in Child and Adolescent Patients Diagnosed with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood psychiatric disorders. The worldwide prevalence of ADHD in children has been reported at 4-7%. NumerousExpand
Comorbid Conditions in Child and Adolescent Patients Diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
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. Expand
Using ADHD Medications to Treat Coexisting ADHD and Reading Disorders: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of studies investigating the effects of ADHD medications on ADHD symptoms, academic outcomes, and neuropsychological measures in children with comorbid ADHD and RD is presented. Expand
Comorbidity of reading disabilities and ADHD: Structural and functional brain characteristics
TLDR
A combination of shared and distinctive brain alterations between the clinical groups was identified, supporting the multiple deficit model for ADHD, RD, and its comorbidity. Expand

The overlap between Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder symptoms and their association with reading skills and social cognition ability
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 thatExpand

Etiology and neuropsychology of comorbidity between RD and ADHD: The case for multiple-deficit models
TLDR
Phenotypic analyses supported the hypothesis that both RD and ADHD arise from multiple cognitive deficits rather than a single primary cognitive deficit, and twin analyses indicated that this shared weakness is primarily due to common genetic influences that increase susceptibility to both disorders.

A comparison of the cognitive deficits in reading disability and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The RD + ADHD group was most impaired on virtually all measures, providing evidence against the phenocopy hypothesis as an explanation for comorbidity between RD and ADHD. Expand

TLDR
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.

Issues surrounding multimodality treatment programs and the potential for long-term interventions to break cycles of school failure and externalizing behavior are discussed. Expand
Comorbidity of Reading Disability and Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
Reading difficulties and ADHD symptoms were more highly heritable if the proband met criteria for both disorders versus RD or ADHD alone, suggesting that future molecular genetic analyses of comorbid RD + ADHD may facilitate the identification of susceptibility genes for RD, ADHD, and theirComorbidity.
