  Attention-deficit/ hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common Neuro-behavioral problems diagnosed among students that are associated with different educational problems including poor academic performance, failing and dropping out of school and it can lead to adjustment problems and disruptive behavior in school. The disorder severely impairs the performance of students in school and its chronic progression leads to other psychiatric disorders in adulthood. Early identification and treatment of the disorder can significantly improve the personal and social performance and reduce the symptoms of disorder. Thus, the importance of assessment, identification and treatment of these students in school and their need to early diagnosis and treatment has been emphasized, enabling them to learn the skills. Therefore, the current article while attempting to analyze the previous researches about conceptualization, definition of attention deficit disorder, etiology, treatment of ADHD and treatment intervention and in general, other factors related to the topic of this research, has tried to identify this disorder better and provide the appropriate treatment intervention at school.
