Abstract

Volgens die literatuur bestaan daar 'n moontlike verband tussen onvolledige of onvoltooide lateralisasiepatrone en verskeie ontwikkelingsversteurings (Hiscock 1988: 85-169). Met die begrip lateralisasie word in die onderhawige studie verwys na hemisferiese taalverteenwoordiging, asook na hand-, voet- en oogdominansie. Seuns (tussen 8-12 jaar oud) met en sonder aandagtekort-hiperaktiwiteitversteuring (ATHV) is dienooreenkomstig in twee groepe verdeel, wat met mekaar vergelyk is ten opsigte van bogenoemde modaliteite. Die resultate toon statisties beduidende verskille tussen seuns met ATHV en seuns sonder ATHV met betrekking tot hemisferiese taalspesialisering, hand- en voetdominansie. Oor die algemeen is die seuns sonder ATHV sterker gelateraliseerd as seuns met ATHV. Geen statisties beduidende verskil is gevind met betrekking tot oogdominansie nie.

The literature suggests a possible connection between abnormal lateralisation patterns and various developmental disorders (Hiscock 1988: 85-169). In the current study lateralisation refers to hemispheric language specialisation, hand dominance, foot dominance and eye dominance. Boys (8-12 years) with and without attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were divided into two groups and compared in respect of the above-mentioned modalities. The results indicate that there are statistically significant differences between ADHD boys and non-ADHD boys with regard to hemispheric language specialisation, hand dominance and foot dominance. Overall the ADHD boys were not as strongly lateralised as the non-ADHD boys. No statistical differences were found with regard to eye dominance.
