Abstract: 

This study was designed: First to determine whether or not motor skills difficulties and neuro - muscular dysfunctions occurred significantly in ADHD pupils aged 7-10 years; second, to explore the pattern and nature of difficulties found in such a group. The subjects were two groups of children: the ADHD group consisted of 22 students referred to Tohid pupils Psychologic service, and normal group consisted of 22 students with no known dysfunction, in the 4th zone of Tehran.

The results indicated that ADHD group had significantly lower scores (P<.05) in the Lincoln Oseretsky Motor Development Scales (LOMDS) and Clinical observation (CO) than a normal group of pupils. Subjects with ADHD demonstrated relative strengths in the areas of visual motor integration and balance opened eyes. The results suggest that it may be helpful for occupational therapists to consider the areas of praxis and vestibular processing in the evaluation and treatment of children with ADHD and that in clinical practice.
