Behaviour Planning and Problem Solving Deficiencies in Children of the Balobedu Culture with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Refilwe Gloria Pila-Nemutandani

The aim of the study was to test whether children with symptoms of Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder have deficits in behaviour planning as measured by the Tower of London. A total of 90 children (45 with ADHD and 45 matched controls without ADHD symptoms) of both genders from the Balobedu community, aged 7-13, participated in the study. The results were analysed as a function of ADHD subtype. 

The Maze Coordination Task (testing fine motor skills) was used as a control test to make sure that the expected differences were not due to poor motor skills. The results showed that the Tower of London was able to discriminate between the group with symptoms of ADHD and the non-ADHD control group and that the difference in performance was not due to poor motor control.
