Look to the work of Bonnie Kaplan in Calgary who has done a lot of work with this co-connection. The link is interesting because it heralds a possible problem with the cerebellum. These individuals often have other coordination problems (dyslexia might be considered a coordination problems of how your eyes scan words) like handwriting, clumsiness etc. Some authors like Harry Levinson talks about Cerebellar problems as the root of ADHD but this is a real peripheral opinion. The implications of treatment may be more real, however, and is worth exploring.
