From Slow Cognitive Tempo to Cognitive Disengagement and Hypoactivity Syndrome

Research on the Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (SCT) dimension has advanced significantly in the last fifteen years to the point where reliable and valid measures have been developed that are capable of being linked to psychopathological symptoms, even after controlling for the influence of the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) measure and Inattention. The more clinical perspective of LCL developed alongside ADHD but has reached the point where the possibility of its independence through Cognitive Disconnection and Hypoactivity Syndrome (CDHS) has been raised. The aim of this symposium is to analyze the links of TCL behaviors with some of the most prevalent symptoms and psychopathological disturbances in childhood and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of conceptualizing the dimension in a clearly clinical perspective.
