Introduction: Considering the increase in the number of children suffering from attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder compared to previous years, as well as the need of the scientific community to have correct and accurate scientific information about this disorder, it is necessary to carry out scientific research and more detailed investigations in the society for treatment. This disorder should be treated.
Aim: This research was conducted with the aim of comparing the effectiveness of computerized cognitive rehabilitation and practical neuropsychological exercises on working memory and clinical symptoms of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Method: The research method was semi-experimental with a pre-test, post-test and follow-up plan with a control group. The population of this research was all children aged 7 to 11 with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder who referred to pediatric psychiatrists and child psychologists in Tehran in the months of April to September 1401, and among them, 45 children were selected using a targeted sampling method. They were randomly selected and replaced in three equal groups of 15 people. To collect data, the Wechsler Working Memory Test (WISC-R), Children's Illness Symptoms Questionnaire (CSI-4), the fourth edition of the Swanson, Nolan and Pelham SNAP-IV scale and the Wechsler Children's Scale WISC-V DS21 subtest were used. SPSS software and multivariate covariance analysis tests were used for data analysis.
Results: The results showed that both computerized cognitive rehabilitation intervention and neuropsychological practical exercises showed a significant difference in the post-test stage and follow-up on working memory and clinical symptoms of children with disorders. They have created attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Conclusion: The results show that in working memory variables and clinical symptoms, computerized cognitive rehabilitation training and practical neuropsychological exercises have the same effectiveness.
