Abstract

Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) found to have impairments in cognitive
functions such as attention, concentration, motor coordination and working memory. Current study aims to assess
the effectiveness of the concentration and coordination exercise tool (CCET) in improving cognitive functions in
children with ADHD. A quantitative research study was advanced with the help of pre-test post-test experimental
research design. Participants of the current study were 15 children within the age range of 7-12 years. A pre-test
was conducted to assess the cognitive functions such as, concentration, motor coordination and working memory.
Then the participants were undergone 8 weeks of exercise using CCET. The data were statistically analyzed by
using SPSS. From the findings, it can be concluded that training using CCET significantly improves the motor
dexterity, verbal working memory, attention and concentration in children with ADHD.
