Executive function (EF) deficits in adults with ADHD have been shown to have a negative impact on everyday functioning and quality of life (QOL). Very few cognitive training studies have targeted EF deficits in individuals with ADHD. Although positive effects have been demonstrated on training tasks, neuropsychological and ADHD symptomatology measures, additional evidence is needed to confirm these findings as well as to examine the effects on EFs, everyday fanctioning and QOL. Thus, the goal of this pilot study was to further examine the effect of computerized cognitive training for adults with ADHD on measures of ADHD symptomatology, EFs, occupational performance and QOL.
