RIBEIRO, Simone Pletz. CBT and executive functions in children with TDAH. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.2, pp. 126-134. ISSN 1808-5687.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a developmental disorder whose symptoms cause difficulties in personal and interpersonal life. In children, it compromises their functional life with direct reflexes in the school context, causing learning problems. In addition to genetic factors, biological and social traits are correlated to the development of the disorder. This article reviews the main behavioral modification techniques, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, that support the therapeutic work with patients with the disorder. These techniques aim at instrumentalizing the patient to face conflicts, developing some important functions such as: attention, planning and problem solving, directly related to executive functions, which are precarious in patients who present with attention deficits. There is evidence in the specialized literature that the application of these techniques suggests gains in the development of executive functions.
