This study investigated whether motor function may have diagnostic or aetiological significance in the identification of a subgroup of dyslexics characterized by attention deficits. Data from an epidemiological study of 480 New Zealand boys failed to support this suggestion. High-Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) dyslexics were not found to differ from low-ADD dyslexics on 26 out of 27 measures of motor function.
