Autism Spectrum Chaveli Lopez Keiser University Abstract Autism spectrum disorder ASD is a range of complex neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by social impairments; communication difficulties; and restricted, repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Autism spectrum has a set of signs and symptoms that appear differently in every child. Usually ASD is notice as early as infancy. Receiving the diagnosis of this disorder is one of the most difficult steps for the parent.

A follow-up pilot study of objective measures in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD is a common childhood problem requiring stimulant medications in a significant proportion of cases.
The aim of this pilot study was to assess the effects of prolonged stimulant medication therapy on a continuous performance test, the Test of Variables of Attention TOVAwhich measures objectively features of ADHD.
Eighteen children aged 8 to 16 years who were diagnosed with ADHD, based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edn criteria, were included in the study. Assessment on a continuous performance test TOVA was performed initially and the children were administered stimulant medications for at least 12 months.
Follow up TOVA scores showed a significant improvement in mean commission errors impulsivity after the stimulant medication therapy. No significant improvement was found in omission errors inattentionresponse time and variability.
There was a significant positive correlation between commission and omission scores P value 0. The results of this pilot study indicate that there is objective improvement in impulsivity in children with ADHD after a prolonged period of stimulant medication therapy.
The study suggests that it would be useful to perform formal studies to investigate this further and also to assess the role of continuous performance test TOVA as a method for monitoring the need for ongoing therapy. Journal of Neurotherapy, 1 2 The remaining 8 Ss initially on medication showed no change.
However, 4 of these 8 Ss showed overall improvement, implying that this same dosage of drug was more effective. The effect of tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy on inattention and impulsivity as measured by the test of variables of attention TOVA in children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
To evaluate children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome OSAS for features of attention deficit disorder ADD using an objective test of inattention and impulsivity: This study was a prospective interventional comparative trial in a tertiary care children's hospital.
The mean preoperative TOVA score was The mean postoperative TOVA score was Significance These findings may be important in understanding the impact of OSAS and therapeutic interventions on behavioral problems in children.
Dehydration impairs vigilance-related attention in male basketball players. To determine the effects of dehydration DEH on attentional vigilance in male basketball players.
The TOVA consisted of target-infrequent and target-frequent conditions, simulating static and dynamic such as a basketball game environments, respectively. Vigilance-related attention of male basketball players was impaired by DEH, especially during the target-frequent condition of the TOVA.
These results suggest that fluid replacement is essential to prevent the decline in vigilance that occurs with DEH in highly dynamic environments.
Therefore, basketball players should be advised to maintain EUH for optimal concentration and attentional skills during competition. Longitudinal investigation of task persistence and sustained attention in children with prenatal cocaine exposure.
The present study estimates the longitudinal effects of prenatal cocaine exposure on indicators of sustained attention processing at 3, 5 and 7 years of age in an urban sample of full-term African-American children cocaine-exposed, noncocaine-exposed.
The sample was enrolled prospectively at birth, with documentation of prenatal drug exposure status through maternal interview, urine and meconium toxicology assays.
Sustained attention was measured at age 3 years using a standardized measure of task persistence during a challenging task [G.Do the same thing for the "Conclusion" at the end of the list.
