Abstract: Executive functions include the abilities you need to be able to set goals, plan the way to achieve them and finally attain them. These abilities relate to the maturation of the prefrontal cortex (PFC). Nowadays there is consensus about the efficacy of multidisciplinary or multimodal treatmen focused on the intervention of ADHD, that include pharmacological, psychosocial, familiar and educative interventions, with the rehabilitation and direct stimulation (to be able to produce new cognitive resources). The objective of this research is to validate the efficacy of a global, functional, ecological and significant protocol of rehabilitation of the executive functions based on educational robotics (ER). Using a randomized clinical trial with 3 groups: one with RE; another with an intervention based on the "Goal-Plan-Do-Review" model; and the last one a control group, that will do a robot activity without intervention protocol. The results will be examined using BRIEF-2, NEPSY-II, and the IVP and IMT of the WISC-V. This examination will be carried out three times: pre-intervention, post-intervention and one year later. To compare the results, we will use ANOVA of multiple mensuration and regressions lineal models. We expect to find statistically significant results that will show a similar result between the two first groups, but not in the control one. Impact: different studies show that after the application of standard methods of rehabilitation, 61 % of ADHD kids still present alterations of the normal organization and planning of their daily life. One of the most important challenges of neuropsychology should be the implementation of new forms of rehabilitation, forms that should be more functional and ecological, and that will favor the integration of emotions and cognition thus leading to generalized improvements. If we get the expected results, we think that our model may become one of these complementary intervention models.
