Riga, Asimina; Papayiannis, Nikolaos – International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, 2015
The present study investigates if there is a positive effect of the use of concept mapping software on students with Attention Deficit (AD) when learning descriptive writing in the secondary level of education. It also examines what kind of difficulties AD students may have come across during this learning procedure. Sample students were selected…

Trezise, Kim L.; Gray, Kylie M.; Sheppard, Dianne M. – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2008
Background: Down syndrome (DS) has been the focus of much cognitive and developmental research; however, there is a gap in knowledge regarding sustained attention, particularly across different sensory domains. This research examined the hypothesis that children with DS would demonstrate superior visual rather than auditory performance on a…

Kuchinsky, Stefanie Ellen – ProQuest LLC, 2009
Given the amount of visual information in a scene, how do speakers determine what to talk about first? One hypothesis is that speakers start talking about what has attentional priority, while another is that speakers first extract the scene gist, using the obtained relational information to generate a rudimentary sentence plan before retrieving…

Abbott, Lindsey; Dornbush, Abby; Giddings, Anne; Thomas, Jennifer – Online Submission, 2012
In the action research project report, the teacher researchers found that many kindergarten and first-grade students did not have the reading readiness skills to be reading at their benchmark target. The purpose of the project was to improve the students overall reading ability. The dates of the project began on September 8 through December 20,…

Li, J., Ed.; Gromik, N., Ed.; Edwards, N., Ed. – TESOL International Association, 2013
It should come as no surprise that digital video technology is of particular interest to English language learners; students are drawn to its visual appeal and vibrant creative potential. The seven original case studies in this book demonstrate how video can be an effective and powerful tool to create fluid, fun, interactive, and collaborative…

Cowan, Nelson; Naveh-Benjamin, Moshe; Kilb, Angela; Saults, J. Scott – Developmental Psychology, 2006
We asked whether the ability to keep in working memory the binding between a visual object and its spatial location changes with development across the life span more than memory for item information. Paired arrays of colored squares were identical or differed in the color of one square, and in the latter case, the changed color was unique on…

Kane, Michael J.; Poole, Bradley J.; Tuholski, Stephen W.; Engle, Randall W. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2006
The executive attention theory of working memory capacity (WMC) proposes that measures of WMC broadly predict higher order cognitive abilities because they tap important and general attention capabilities (R. W. Engle & M. J. Kane, 2004). Previous research demonstrated WMC-related differences in attention tasks that required restraint of habitual…

Brown, P. Margaret; Bortoli, Anna; Remine, Maria D.; Othman, Basyariatul – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2008
The social engagement, social attention skills and social competence of 10 hearing preschoolers and 10 preschoolers with hearing loss were investigated during free play in inclusive oral kindergarten settings using a three-level hierarchical model. When comparing the types of opportunities, at the first level, the children with hearing loss…

Setliff, Alissa E.; Courage, Mary L. – Infancy, 2011
The effect of background television on 6- and 12-month-olds' attention during 20 min of toy play was examined. During the first or second half of the session, a clip from a variety of commonly available television programs was presented. The duration and frequency of infants' looks to the toys and to the television indicated that regardless of age…

Rossiter, Susan; Stevens, Catherine; Walker, Gary – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2006
Purpose: In 2 experiments, the assumption that continual orienting to tinnitus uses cognitive resources was investigated. It was hypothesized that differences in performance of tinnitus and control groups would manifest during demanding or unfamiliar tasks that required strategic, controlled processing and that reduced performance was not related…

Pempek, Tiffany A.; Kirkorian, Heather L.; Richards, John E.; Anderson, Daniel R.; Lund, Anne F.; Stevens, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2010
Earlier research established that preschool children pay less attention to television that is sequentially or linguistically incomprehensible. The authors of this study determined the youngest age for which this effect can be found. One hundred and three 6-, 12-, 18-, and 24-month-olds' looking and heart rate were recorded while they watched…

Gutierrez, Aida; Calvo, Manuel G. – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2011
We investigated the processing of threat-related, positive, and neutral words in parafoveal and in foveal vision as a function of individual differences in trait anxiety. In a lexical-decision task, word primes were presented for 150 ms either parafoveally (2.2[degrees] away from fixation; Experiment 1) or foveally (at fixation; Experiment 3)…

Kuhle, Hans J.; Kinkelbur, Jorg; Andes, Kerstin; Heidorn, Fridjof M.; Zeyer, Solveigh; Rautzenberg, Petra; Jansen, Fritz – Journal of Attention Disorders, 2007
Objective: To test if visual focusing and mimic display as features of self-regulation in ADHD children show a curvilinear relation to rising methylphenidate (MPH) doses. To test if small dose steps of 2.5mg MPH cause significant changes in behavior. And to test the relation of these features to intellectual performance, parents' ratings, and…
