Abstract

This article reviews cognitive training studies that hvae been carried out with children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) during the past decade.

The impact of training on the cognitive, academic, and behavioral functioning of youngsters with ADHD is summarized. Although this treatment modality is inherently appealing, there is little empirical support for its clinical utility with children with hyperactivity.
