Hyperactivity and Cuing Responsivity in Learning Disabled Boys.
Blackwell, Scott L.; And Others
Performances of 12 hyperactive learning disabled (LD) boys and 12 non-hyperactive LD boys were compared with two groups of 12 normal control boys (6-11 years old) on a visual search task. Ss were asked to locate a target letter appearing within an array of randomly selected letters during cued and non-cued trials. Results indicated that in the absence of visual cues, the hyperactive LD Ss did not show an organized search pattern similar to that observed for non-hyperactive LD and normal Ss. Hyperactive LD Ss performed as well as non-hyperactive LD Ss but not as well as normal Ss when given visual cues. Findings suggested that attention of hyperactive LD Ss is disrupted by the child's cognitive inability to analyze, organize, and plan. (CL)
