Abstract 
Objective: To investigate the effectiveness of visual-perceptual exercises and its impact on improving students' attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Methods & Materials: A case study was conducted. Two students with ADHD attending ‘Navid Asr Center’ were selected through purposive sampling. The participants were 9 and 11 years old and their mean IQ was 100. Their ADHD was determined by their poor André Rey test outcomes. Upon administering the visual-perceptual exercises, the selective attention and concentration (d2) test was performed after the sixth and twelfth sessions again. At the end of the study the baseline d2 was drawn to evaluate the study results. 
Results: The visual-perceptual exercises somewhat improved the children's overall efficiency score. Their errors lessened and their precision moderately increased. Moreover, their concentration considerably improved. If performed in the form of games, these exercises can improve perceptual and visual function in these children.
Conclusions: Comparison of the mean values, charts and percentages showed that the application of visual-perceptual exercises improved the overall efficiency score, concentration, precision and attention in ADHD students.
