Differences in sensory processing in children using the AULA test: A comparative analysis of auditory and visual stimuli

Abstract

ADHD is a disorder that primarily affects children and adolescents, characterised by prominent and enduring symptoms of inattention, overactivity, and impulsivity. This study investigates how children with typical development (TD) respond to auditory and visual stimuli, comparing their behaviour to clinic-referred children who are suspected of having ADHD. Two samples were collected for this analysis, one consisting of 1,295 participants and the other consisting of 378 participants between the ages of 8 and 16. The main hypothesis states that there will be no difference in the participant’s response to visual and auditory stimuli. The second hypothesis suggests that if the first hypothesis is not supported, there will be noticeable differences in the responses of the clinical sample to these stimuli. Results suggest that the first hypothesis is fulfilled for all variables except for the variables mean time for correct responses and omissions. Likewise, differences are also present in the clinical sample, confirming the second hypothesis.
