“Moreover, lower timing precision in the ADHD children/adolescents might also be due to unrefined motor timing skills. A case study in which a 9-year-old boy diagnosed with ADHD was reported to improve in timing accuracy after 7weeks of metronomic limb movement training demonstrated the importance of motor skills to timing functions (Bartscherer et al., 2005). Children with ADHD have been found to demonstrate a higher reaction time variability (Kofler et al., 2013) as well as slower and more variable motor outputs than their non-affected siblings, and the variability in motor timing was found to be associated with ADHD (Rommelse et al., 2007). Hence, the higher variability in motor processing and motor timing in ADHD might provide a plausible explanation for the lower precision in timing observed in children and adolescents with ADHD in the current study”
