Author : Ali Hasanpour Dehkordi, Kamal Solati*

Abstract

Aim: One of the most prevalent pervasive development disorders is attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of attention games on symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder in male students of elementary schools. Methods: This study was a semi experimental study. The study population consisted of all male elementary students with ADHD in Bouin Miandasht County in 2013-2014. For this study, the participants were randomly enrolled and then assigned to two case and control groups. Then Connors questionnaire (for parents and teachers) was used to gather data. Firstly, a pretest was administered to the two groups. Then case group performed attention games individually for 30-45 min within eight sessions. At the completion of sessions, a post-test was administered to both groups by Connors questionnaire. Descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and analytical statistics (ANCOVA) in SPSS were used for data analysis. Results: Analysis of covariance indicated no significant difference between the two groups before the intervention, but attention games had a significant effect on ADHD symptoms including hyperactivity-impulsivity and inattention in the treatment group after the intervention (P<0.05). Key words: Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Attention Games, Elementary Male Students.
