Focused Attention in Pervasively Hyperactive Children.
van der Meere, Jaap; Sergeant, Joseph
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v16 n6 p627-39 Dec 1988
In an investigation of the distractibility of hyperactive children and controls (N=24) in a focused attention task, differences in task efficiency were not significant. Differences in error percentages were associated with IQ. Variable reaction times in hyperactives are not to be explained in terms of a focused attention deficit. (JW)
