A Developmental Index Using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children: Implications for the Diagnosis and Nature of ADHD.
Bowers, Thomas G.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v25 n3 p179-85,195 Mar 1992
This study examined the utility of Wechsler's Deterioration Index, which compares short- and long-term memory capabilities. Three studies with a total of 120 children (ages 6-14) found that the index did not predict learning disability status but did distinguish children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder from nondisabled children.
