Objectives: The study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Dela Cato method in the treatment of hyperactive 7-12 years old boys.

Method: 60 out of 120 boys admitted to psychiatrists’ offices and the Children Clinic of Roozbeh Hospital were randomly selected. These subjects had a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) on the basis of DSM-IV criteria and Conners Parents and Teachers Scale. In the pre- treatment phase, the Conners Parents and Teachers Scale was administered to all the children. The experimental group was treated with Dela Cato neuropsychological method.

Findings: After the treatment phase, which took four months, the Conners Scale was once again administered to both groups. The data was analysed  through central indices.A t-test compared the means between the correlated groups.
