Abstract: This study's main objective was to determine in what ways are characterized pupils aged 12 and 13 years attending the “Cheminement particulier continu” (CPC) regarding their math skills, their reading skills, their working memory, their visuo-spatial as well as their attention abilities. This study was also to assess the relationship between math skills and these different variables. The third objective was to compare student performance of CPC with a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to those obtained by the CPC students without a diagnosis of ADHD in respect to the variables measured. Finally, we also wanted to compare result of the CPC student that are medicated for their ADHD to result of the CPC student that are not medicated for their ADHD. Forty students from 12 and 13 years of CPC were assess in this study. The results show that CPC students were significantly lower, with respect to five variables, than the students of the same age who do not have learning disabilities. No significant correlation was found between math skills and the study’s variables and between the different variables when used in conjunction with each other. In addition, the results show that CPC students with ADHD achieve similar results in the five variables under study that CPC students without ADHD. Finally, the results tell us that CPC students with ADHD medicated achieve results similar in the five variables under study that CPC students that are not medicated for their ADHD.
