Summary
The purpose of this research study was to investigate the attentional performance of adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and adults with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This research study examined attentional performance of these two groups based upon a model by Allen F. Mirsky, which suggested attention can be classified into the four attentional components of encode, sustain, focus/execute and shift (Mirsky, 1996). When reviewing past research related to attentional impairment, research has indicated that both individuals with ADHD and TBI have attentional deficits (Chan, 2001). However no current research has compared these two groups in a single study nor investigated attentional components in depth based on neuropsychological test data. This research study compared persons with ADHD and TBI on Mirsky's four attentional components to determine attentional deficit differences. The results of the study improve knowledge of attentional components for future theory, research, and clinical practice. An ANOVA statistical design was used with three apriori contrast statements which compared 70 adults with ADHD and TBI on several neuropsychological tests. Participants were divided into four subgroups: ADHD only, ADHD combined with other psychiatric disorders, TBI, and other (non TBI related) neurological impairments. Results indicated a trend toward poorer performance on neuropsychological tests of encode (working memory) and shift attentional components for individuals with TBI or other (non TBI related) neurological impairments compared to persons with ADHD. However, there were no statistically significant differences found between these two groups. Implications of this research study were presented to influence attentional theory development, as well as rehabilitation and training needs particularly in attentional performance for individuals with ADHD and TBI
