The Test of Attention Impulsivity and Hyperactivity in Children (TAIH-C) measures auditory and visual attention independently. The measures are based on a multifactorial model of attention, incorporating General Alertness, Sustained Attention Vigilance, Selective Attention and Divided Attention. They are designed to be free of academic knowledge; culture, gender and age bias. Practice effects are minimal and the attention tasks increase incrementally in difficulty. The two attention scales of the TAIH-C are designed to discriminate between children ranging in age from 6-16 years. In this paper, the performance on both attention scales of children independently diagnosed with ADHD is compared to that of non-ADHD peers.
