Abstract

Propose: For the measurement of symptoms of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, questionnaires and neuropsychology scales are being used. This study aimed to investigate the validity and reliability measurement of the cognitive-motor functions test in ADHD. Methods: A number of 36 children were selected (age range: 6-12 years, mean age 9.12±2.38 years old) with lack in comorbid who referred to Counseling and Psychological Clinical Shenakht Center of Isfahan city. All children were asked to fill the parent and teacher Conner’s questionnaires and recorded cognitive-motor functions measurement tests. Correlations between parent, teacher Conner’s subscales and cognitive-motor functions test were investigated. Results: The results of Pearson correlation coefficient showed that there is a significant relation between commission error in cognitive-motor functions test and hyperactivity subscales in Conner’s parent (r=0.93, p<0.01) and teacher (r=0.91, p<0.01) questionnaire. The relationship between omission error with inattention subscales of Conner’s parent (r=0.83, p<0.01) and teacher (r=0.90, P<0.01) questionnaire were also significant. Also there are significant correlations between reaction time and opposition subscale (impulsivity) of Conner’s parent (r=0.92, p<0.01) and teacher (r=0.82, p<0.01) questionnaire. Conclusion: The current study showed strong correlation between Conner’s questionnaires scales and cognitive-motor functions test in ADHD. So, this tool was used for diagnostic of this disorder parallel with the other questionnaires and neuropsychology.
