TONIOLO, Cintia Sicchieri et al. Characterization of motor performance in students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2009, vol.26, n.79, pp. 33-40. ISSN 0103-8486.

AIMS: To characterize and to compare the motor performance of students with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with the performance of students with normal neuropsicomotor development and to verify the occurrence of Disorder Coordination Development (DCD). METHOD: 30 students from 2nd to 4th grades participated, from both genders, ranging from 6 to 12 years old, distributed in: GI: 15 students with ADHD and GII: 15 students with normal neuropsicomotor development, paired according to gender and age with GI. The Motor Examination was conducted for diagnosis of Deficit of Attention, Motor Control and Perception (DAMP). RESULTS: The results evidenced a significant statistical difference, revealing that GI presented inferior performance in the fine and gross motor skills tests. CONCLUSION: Once students with ADHD presented inferior performance in the motor examination in this study, they can have DCD as comorbidity, not being, however, the coordination disorders shown here characteristic of ADHD.
