Fatemeh Ebrahimi, Naser Bagheri


The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of local-native games on hyperactivity / childhood symptoms of children aged 7 to 10 with hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The present study was a pre-test, post-test, and control group. The tools of this study were the Vanderbilt Assessment Questionnaire (Teacher's Form and Parents), a sample of which included 10 children (girl and boy) aged 7 to 10 with hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the academic year 3700-3100, who were randomly assigned to the experimental group 10 patients (and control group) were assigned to 10 persons. They completed intervention in both groups and tested the Vanderbilt Questionnaire (Teacher and Parent Form) as a pretest. The experimental group was then subjected to local-native intervention, but the control group did not receive any interventions. After completing the games, both groups were subjected to post-test. The results of multivariate analysis of covariance showed that native-local games significantly improved the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder / attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) children aged 7 to 10 years with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
