The SOTP mentions hyperkinetic disorder as manifesting soft neurological signs like overflow and mirroring. What are these exactly??

mirroring is when you ask the child to do finger to thumb adduction with one hand and then you watch the other hand for similar such movements.

mirroring due lack frontal inhibition

so when ask child to perform luria three step or finger thumb they will also move other side

can also see probelms with tap dont tap eg ask child to tap table when you dont and vice versa, failure of inhibition. I think overflow is similar
