Researchers at Tel Aviv University have developed a computerised progressive attention training (CPAT) programme which may improve the attention spans of those suffering from ADHD. Four months after treatment, a third of students with ADHD who received the CPAT programme had improved and remained so. The results were significantly better than improvement seen in a parallel protocol of mindfulness training. The improvements achieved through the CPAT were also maintained for months after the end of the treatment.
