Although there is intense clinical interest in children's attention, very few reliable and valid measures of attentional function are currently available to clinicians working in this area. The Test of Everyday Attention for Children (TEACh) is a new battery of attentional tests for children and young people between the ages of 6 and 16. Using attractive game formats the battery of eight subtests samples attentional performance in a number of domains including selective and sustained attention, attentional switching, divided attention and the ability to withhold prepotent motor and verbal responses. Reliability and validity have been established on a normative sample of 293 children.
