Abstract: This paper is about a 12-year-old patient diagnosed with attention deficit disorder with / without inattentive hyperactivity, with significant attention difficulties affecting her cognitive performance and daily life. ADHD is a neurobiological disorder that affects 5% of the population, and manifests itself through a pattern of inattention and / or hyperactivity-impulsivity present in all areas of the patient's life. It is common to find a clinical picture of executive dysfunction characterized by alterations in working memory, planning, cognitive flexibility and emotional regulation. The neuropsychological evaluation performed on the patient shows a slight intellectual disability along with significant changes (alteration, disturbance) in attention, working memory, visuospatial skills, reasoning, language and executive functions (planning, cognitive flexibility and emotional regulation). The low awareness of her own difficulties stands out. The proposed neuropsychological intervention has as main objective to achieve greater autonomy in daily life instrumental activities, stimulating the most affected functions and working on the awareness of fatigue states. An intervention consisting of 2 weekly sessions of 45 minutes for 6 months is proposed. The tasks are carried out through recreational activities, board games and use of new technologies to boost her motivation. The intervention focuses on stimulating the most deteriorated cognitive constructs and emotional psychoeducation. After the intervention, a limited improvement in cognitive performance is expected due to her pathology, however, a continuous need for long-term intervention is anticipated.
