Global developmental delay (GDD) and intellectual development disorder (IDD) are common but heterogeneous pediatric conditions. Guided by a rigorous clinical and anamnestic examination, the diagnostic approach is a dynamic process which is not limited to the intelligence quotient measurement. A large panel of paraclinical tests allows etiological exploration; this generally includes biological, genetic, metabolic and iconographic examinations. To maximize therapeutic efficiency and standardize practices, this document provides a guideline for the management of pediatric GDD/IDD. [less ▲]

People with Spina Bifida usually experience difficulties with mathematics. In a series of other developmental disorders, a magnitude processing deficit was considered to be the main source of subsequent difficulties in mathematics. The processing of magnitude could be numerical (which is the larger number) or non-numerical such as spatial (e.g., which is the longer?) or temporal (which one last longer?) for instance. However, no study yet has examined directly magnitude processes in a population with Spina Bifida. On the other hand, recent studies in people with genetic syndromes have suggested that visuospatial and working memory processes play an important role in magnitude processing, including number magnitude. Therefore, in this study we explored for the first time magnitude representation using several tasks with different visuospatial and working memory processing requirements, cognitive skills frequently impaired in Spina Bifida. Results showed children with SB presented a global magnitude processing deficit for non-numerical and numerical comparison tasks, but not in symbolic number magnitude tasks compared to controls. Importantly, visuospatial skills and working memory abilities could partially explain the differences between groups in comparison and estimation tasks. This study proposes that magnitude processing difficulties in children with SB could be due to higher cognitive factors such as visuospatial and working memory processes. [less ▲]

Children’s ability to use their fingers in numerical contexts is assumed to contribute to the development of basic mathematical skills (Fayol & Seron, 2005; Gunderson et al., 2015). Some authors pointed to finger gnosia as a good predictor of arithmetic abilities developed some years later (Fayol, Barrouillet, & Marinthe, 1998; Noël, 2005; Penner-Wilger & Anderson, 2008) while others highlighted the relationship between manual dexterity and early numerical and arithmetical abilities (Asakawa & Sugimura, 2009, 2011, 2014; Suggate, Stoeger & Fisher, 2017). At present, the contribution of the fine motor skills to early number development has been less investigated. The aim of this study is to examine how manual dexterity contributes to early number and arithmetical processing using 3D human motion analyses, a technique providing fine-grained measures of finger dissociation and finger coordination –two components of manual dexterity. Thirty preschoolers aged between 3 and 5 years old were tested in finger dissociation and finger coordination tasks as well as in tasks assessing early numerical and arithmetic development (i.e. reciting of numbers words, counting, number words cardinal knowledge, calculating with picture support). The multiple regression analyses showed the predictive value of finger dexterity for cardinality and arithmetic skills while controlling for age differences. This result outline the tight relationship between fine motor skills and early mathematical abilities and suggest that finger coordination could have decisive influences on the use of finger-based strategies in support to the development of numerical concepts and early arithmetic in young children.

De nos jours, un grand nombre de professionnels sont confrontés à des enfants scolarisés à l’école maternelle et présentant des difficultés attentionnelles ou une agitation marquée. En réponse aux demandes d'aide, différents types de prise en charge ont été développées parmi lesquelles les rééducations neuropsychologiques. Ces programmes nécessitent souvent un matériel spécifique de type « papier crayon » ou informatique qui peut parfois être onéreux ou se montrer difficilement transférable à la vie quotidienne. Les activités quotidiennes des enfants sont pourtant source de nombreux apprentissages cognitifs qui pourraient être exploités en prise en charge. Dans cette étude, l'efficacité d'une intervention cognitive qui s’intègre dans les activités de la vie quotidienne a été évaluée au sein d'une étude expérimentale de cas unique (design SCED, single-case experimental design) auprès d'un jeune patient âgé de 6 ans 3 mois et scolarisé en 3e année de maternelle. Ce petit garçon présentait des difficultés très marquées au niveau des fonctions attentionnelles et exécutives. Durant dix séances il a bénéficié d’une prise en charge basée sur différentes activités quotidiennes et scolaires présentant une difficulté progressive. Ces activités avaient pour but de développer ses compétences d’inhibition verbale et d’attention soutenue. Les analyses statistiques montrent une amélioration significative des capacités d’attention soutenue et d’inhibition verbale. Un transfert a été observé sur les capacités d’attention sélective visuelle de l’enfant sans que cela n’ait jamais été travaillé en séance. [less ▲]
