Title: Executive Functioning in Children with ADHD : Relationships Between Rating Scales and Standardized Tests
Author: Gehrmann, Helena Ruth
Abstract: Impairment of executive functioning is exhibited in children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Executive functioning has traditionally been measured with standardized tests such as the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test. However, two rating scales to measure executive dysfunction have been developed and may be a useful adjunct to traditional measures. This study proposes to examine two such scales, the Brief Rating Inventory of Executive Function and the Children's Executive Functions Scale, as well as measure their relationship with two standardized measures. Implications of possible outcomes of the study are then discussed.
