Reviews cognitive training studies that have been carried out with children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) during the past decade. The efficacy of cognitive training as a single intervention and as an adjunct to stimulant treatment is discussed. The impact of training on the cognitive, academic, and behavioral functioning of children with ADHD is summarized. Although this treatment modality may be inherently appealing, little empirical support seems available for its clinical utility with children with hyperactivity.
