Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two groups of 9-year-old children (24 children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder [ADHD] and 24 controls) were assessed for kinaesthetic acuity and fine motor skills with medication withdrawn. Results showed significantly poorer performance on both tasks for children with ADHD, but only a weak association between fine motor and kinaesthetic performance. The implications are discussed, particularly the role of attention to proprioceptive signals in children with the diagnosis of ADHD.
