Background and Purpose: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an ordinary behavioral and neurodevelopmental disorder in childhood. Neurofeedback Training (NFT) is one of the new methods to treat and improve this disorder. NFT is an educational and neuropsychological treatment method. The NFT intends to enable people to change their cortical activities by using obtained data from visual or otic feedback of electroencephalographic recorded information of their brain-wave features. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of NFT in increasing the attention and concentration of children with ADHD.
Methods: The research method was quasi-experimental with a pre-test-post-test design. The statistical population of the study includes children with ADHD in Tehran. The sample of this study includes 20 children with ADHD who were selected from Tehran schools by purposive sampling. The NFT was performed in a protocol with 20  individual sessions. The attention and concentration of participants were measured by the D2 Test (2005). Data were analyzed using paired t-test using SPSS-21 software.
Findings: The results of the dependent T-test showed that the effect of neurofeedback intervention on the participants of the experimental group was significant for the variable of attention and concentration (p <0.05). It means that the participants' attention and concentration scores have increased.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, it can be concluded that NFT is an effective method to increase the attention and concentration of children with ADHD. Therapists can use this method to improve the attention and concentration in children with NFT.
