It is important for humans to efficiently detect changes occurring around them for social interaction, learning, and movement, as well as survival and protection (Kessler, 2006). Adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder demonstrate strengths and difficulties in change detection that may affect areas of everyday participation. OTs have an important role in defining these areas, facilitating information processing to enhance adaptive responses, and developing occupational-based interventions.
