Their age range from 6-10 years, and belongs to middle socioeconomic class. Draw A Person (DAP) test used to confirm the IQ to assess visual perceptual abilities was administered by Good enough (1926) was used for the IQ evaluation was used to assess the visual perceptual abilities. Bender Gestalt Test (BG) by Koppitz (1963 was administered. It was found that there was a significant difference in the visual perceptual ability in intellectually disabled (ID) children with Attention deficit disorder ADHD disorder then intellectual disabled without ADHD.(df =45 t=-5.517p<.000). Recommendations for future avenues are also suggested.
