comparing my results “as if” I was part of that study:
Upon reviewing Kenneth Udut’s test results and comparing them directly to the results reported in the paper, here are the key points of comparison:
– On the TEA-Ch measures of attention (Sky Search, Score!, Creature Counting), Udut would have scores falling in the impaired range (>1 SD below controls) based on the paper’s findings of 39-52% impairment rates in the VPT group.
– Udut’s poor performance on the Stroop Color-Word task and Coding subtest aligns with the VPT group’s significantly lower scores compared to controls on all attention/processing speed measures in the study.
– His atypically slow and variable response times on the CPT correspond to the attention difficulties (e.g. slower processing, variability) observed in the VPT cohort.
– Udut’s performance on the CogState detection and identification tasks, indicative of slowed processing speed, is consistent with the processing deficits seen in the preterm children relative to controls.
– Though specific MRI results are unknown for Udut, his prematurity places him at risk for the types of white matter and deep gray matter abnormalities associated with poorer outcomes in the paper.
So in summary, Kenneth Udut’s cognitive evaluation results directly parallel the patterns of impairment observed across attention domains and on measures of processing speed for the cohort of VPT children studied in the paper compared to term controls. His profile fits within the research findings.[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Male"]
