To date, only four studies have investigated the effects on Ritalin on auditory process of children with ADHD and/or APD. Three of them have demonstrated a significant improvement of APD in small group of children with ADHD (58,61,62) and in the last one no differences were found in a group of 66 children (63). Methodology, small group, and variation in the inclusion criteria may have influenced the significant medication effect found on the three first studies. Two of them (61,62) evaluated a population of children diagnosed with ADHD for two successive conditions: first without the treatment and then with it, so the improvement observed may be due to a learning effect.
