Content By: Blomberg R., Danielsson H., Rudner M., Söderlund Göran B.W., Rönnberg J. (2019). Speech Processing Difficulties in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Frontiers in Psychology, 10. 1536. https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2019.01536

Course Description: The current study sought to test the ELU Model’s (Rönnberg et al., 2013) hypotheses that SIN (Speech-in-noise) processing is more difficult for adolescents with ADHD than age-matched controls due to difficulty regulating attention and inhibitions, and sustaining information in working memory. The results of the study highlight the disadvantage that people with cognitive disabilities, specifically ADHD, face when attending to speech in noisy listening environments. Additionally, researchers observed that the subjects in the ADHD group performed more poorly in auditory processing tasks designed to tax attention and working memory capacity and these types of tasks might be beneficial clinical instruments for clinicians to utilize when diagnosing individuals with ADHD.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the central aim of the study and the methods related to assessing the effect of cognitive processing deficits on listening capacity and information retention
  2. Identify how the physiological mechanisms of ADHD can afflict normal cognitive processes and lead to deleterious consequences for individuals in noisy environments
  3. Identify plausible treatment options or beneficial clinical instruments for this population moving forward based on the results given in the referenced study

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Speech Processing Difficulties in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to the cognitive deficits in ADHD and how they can affect an individual’s ability to hear and process information in various settings
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Re-assess for any missed questions, returning to the referenced article to better understand the relationship between speech processing difficulties and cognitive deficits present in ADHD patients
