Comparison of Sustained and Selective Attention in Children Who Have Mental Retardation with and without Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Pearson, Deborah A.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v100 n6 p592-607 May 1996
This study compared children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and mental retardation with children with only mental retardation on tasks involving sustained and selective attention. No compelling evidence emerged for sustained attention deficits in the ADHD children, though evidence suggesting selective attention deficits was found. Girls appeared at higher risk for ADHD than expected. (Author/DB)
