BASTOS, Caroline Benezath Rodrigues  and  QUEIROZ, Sávio Silveira de. Notions of conservation and logical reversibility in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.108, pp. 261-269. ISSN 0103-8486.

The objective of this research was to investigate the notions of conservation and logical reversibility of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Participated in the study 14 female children diagnosed with ADHD, being seven children between 7 and 8 years old and seven between 10 and 11 years old. The research was conducted in a public hospital in the city of Vitória-ES and the instrument used was the Piagetian Test of Conservation of Substance. Data were collected and analyzed qualitatively based on the Piagetian Clinical Method. According to Piaget, the notions of conservation of substance and logical reversibility are acquired approximately at the age of seven. However, the results of this research revealed that the vast majority of the participants, from both age groups, have not yet acquired such notions and the transition stage for acquisition of the notions contains the largest number of participants. Comparing the age groups, it was observed that as the children grow old, there is a progress in the notions of conservation and logical reversibility. Therefore, the results show the need to promote these notions in children with ADHD. Given this fact, it is proposed interventions based on the incentive of social relations of cooperation through play and rule games, because these promote the acquisition of notions of conservation and logical reversibility.
