Summary
The purpose of this research study was to examine differences in the neuropsychological functioning of attention in adults who have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), either with or without a comorbid diagnosis of a Learning Disorder (LD). A specific model of attention, Mirsky's neuropsychological model, was used to investigate these differences. Eighty-one subjects were administered an extensive battery of neuropsychological tests. An ANOVA statistical design was used to compare differences between four groups: a group with ADHD only, a group with LD only, a group with comorbid ADHD and LD, and a group with neither ADHD nor LD (psychiatric controls). Results indicated that individuals with comorbid ADHD and LD are more impaired than psychiatric controls on certain measures of focusing, encoding, verbal intelligence, achievement, and short-term cued recall. In addition, groups with ADHD performed lower than groups without ADHD on certain measures of focusing. Groups with LD performed lower than groups without LD on certain measures of focusing and encoding. Overall, Mirsky's model did not distinguish the group with ADHD from the group with comorbid ADHD and LD
