Resumen

MARTINEZ GONZALEZ, Agustín Ernesto; MARTINEZ LOPEZ, María Dolores  y  ALONSO GARCIA, Idaira María. Integral intervention in a child with epilepsy and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.3, pp.42-49. ISSN 1989-3809.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5231/psy.writ.2014.1111.

For several years, studies have investigated the appearance and prevalence of symptoms typical of Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder in children with epilepsy. Traditional intervention methods to treat Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms include pharmacology and psychological therapy in children and parents. The present study assessed cognitive processes in a child with epilepsy and Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms after one year of neuropsychological rehabilitation and cognitive-behavioural family therapy. The results show an improvement in cognitive processes such as attention, short-term and long-term verbal and non-verbal memory, and executive function. There was also a slight improvement among parents in their perception of hyperactivity and impulsivity symptoms. This study suggests that comprehensive intervention is a promising approach in children with epilepsy and Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms. Future studies should include a larger sample of patients with cognitive impairment and similar brain lesions.

Palabras clave : Epilepsy; Attention Deficit Disorder; Hyperactivity; Neuropsychological Rehabilitation; Behaviour-Cognitive Therapy; Clinical case.
