ADHD is one of common neuropsychological disorders in childhood and continuing to adulthood and disturbs various dimensions of individual’s life such as personal affairs, social interactions, professional life, executive performance like active memory and concentration etc. There are numerous works on treatment of this type of disorder.

This is experimental research pre-test and post-test as well as control group. Statistical population includes adults with ADHD referring to Atiye Clinic in Tehran. Two groups of experimental and control, each one composed of 8 people, were selected using purposive sampling.

The data were analyzed using SPSS software and Mann Whitney statistical test. Also, independent t-test, Wilcoxon, and Kruskal Wallis were applied for further results. Findings showed that neuro-feedback significantly reduced attention and concentration deficit symptoms in ADHD adult experimental group compared to control one.
