Amira H. Mohammed , Hala A. Abdel Gawad , Mohamed Mostafa Mohamed Ahmed

Abstract

Objective: The present study aimed to assess gross motor development in Egyptian preschool children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and its relation to the total percentile scores of the ADHD Rating Scale-IV. Methods: Fifteen Egyptian children suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) according to the ADHD Rating Scale-IV participated in this study from both sexes (11 boys and 4 girls) with mean age 65.47 ±3.58 months. They were conducted by Peabody Developmental Motor Scale (PDMS- 2) to determine their gross motor skills. Results: Based on the gross motor quotient classifications, the children suffering from ADHD had a significantly lower age equivalence in gross motor subsets than their chronological age. Conclusion: We could conclude that children suffering from ADHD had a significant developmental delay in gross motor skills.
