Objective: This study investigated the relationship between processing speed subtests on the WAIS-IV and attention measures on the CCPT-II to determine whether attention deficits can be predicted from processing speed scores. Method: The data were derived from a de-identified clinical database and included 295 participants with a variety of diagnoses. Participants were predominately Caucasian (53.9%), female (55.6%), with a mean age of 33.46 (SD = 13.28) and a mean of 13.65 (SD = 2.20) years of education. Raw scores on Coding and Symbol Search subtests were correlated with t-scores from subscales of the CCPT-II to examine the relationship between processing speed and attention. Scaled scores from the Vocabulary subtest were used to control for intelligence. Criteria for significance was set at p < .001. Results: Significant correlations were found between higher raw scores on Coding and Symbol Search and t-scores the CCPT-II. Coding scores were correlated with ADHD % (r...
