Characterization of Neuropsychological Functioning in Children with Clinical Features of ADHD

Table 2:

Variable Instrument Range of possible scores Interpretation
Attention-hyperactivity profile Barkley Disruptive Behavior Rating Scale From 0 to 27 points on each scale: inattention and hyperactivity - impulsivity Higher scores are considered to have worse results in the performance of each variable (inattention/HI).Values above 15-18 points are considered clinically significant.
Saccadic movements K-D test Execution time (in seconds).Number of mistakes made. According to age norms.Scores from 42.05 to 106.48 seconds are considered normal adding up to the range of 8 to 10 years.Number of errors: 1 to 3 errors are expected
Auditory discrimination PAF test 0-28. The greater the number of errors, the greater the difficulty in phoneme discrimination.It is estimated that the presence of more than 2 errors implies a deficit.
Executive functions Stroop test P, C, PC and interference. Tipical T-scores with mean of 50 and deviation of 10.Interference less than zero: difficulties in inhibiting R.
Working memory WISC-IV digit and letter/number retention subtests to obtain the OMI The Operative Memory Index (OMI). Values below 85 are considered to have a poor working memory performance (below average).
