SCANDAR, Mariano G.. Relationship between ADHD symptoms and school learning in Argentinean preschool children. Neuropsicologia Latinoamericana [online]. 2013, vol.5, n.2, pp. 11-23. ISSN 2075-9479.

Objective: To assess the influence that the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as referred by teachers, have over the learning process in preschool population. Methodology: On a sample of 55 preschool children attending to a private school a questionnaire was administered to teachers (ICD-PRE) to assess symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, anxiety, depression and oppositionism. Also the known mediators of learning were evaluated (syllabic awareness, phonological awareness, reading, numeric awareness and quantification) using a structured scale developed for this purpose by the school. Finally, we also explored the perception of teachers on the learning level of children. Results: The analysis of the results showed moderate correlations between symptoms of inattention and mediators of learning and a high correlation between the symptoms and the perception of teachers about the child's educational performance. The symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity showed significant correlations only slightly. The gender factor provided no significant differences. Conclusions: The present results show on one hand the link between ADHD symptoms on learning in the age group studied and the importance of inattention symptoms over the rest of the symptomatic constellation of ADHD.
