Étude des performances attentionnelles et de lecture d'un groupe d'enfants TDA/H dans 3 modalités d'évaluation : naturelle, expérimentale, virtuelle

Abstract : Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common pathology in child psychiatry. ADHD can be isolated or associated with other disorders like specific learning disability. The attention deficit and the distractibility slow down learning process. In spite of various and numerous research on ADHD population, specific cognitive disorders which explain the differences in ADHD abilities are unknown. This is partly due to fluctuation of abilities from a moment to another during the day but also from an assessment context's to another. Virtual reality tools, such as The Virtual Classroom, can be interesting to capture cognitive and behavioral functioning in daily life environment, such as school environment. Previous research provide evidence of the sensibility of the Virtual Classroom, but the constancy of the performances between assessment situation's has not be investigated. Therefore, we proposed to 28 AHDH children sample an assessment protocol of attention and reading in three different situations : natural, experimental and virtual. Our results point out that natural and experimental assessments involve the same cognitive abilities as those required in school environment. The virtual classroom doesn't provide an image of cognitive and behavioral profile of ADHDH children in their everyday life.
