Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neuropsychological tests [ Time Frame: 3-4 weeks after last training session ]
    Subtests from the NEPSY-II test battery


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quantum EEG [ Time Frame: 3-4 weeks after last training session ]
    Electroencephalography (EEG) is the measurement of electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp which reflect cortical activity, and are commonly referred to as "brainwaves". Quantitative EEG (qEEG) is the analysis of the digitized EEG, and in lay terms this sometimes is also called "Brain Mapping"

  2. Questionaires [ Time Frame: 3-4 weeks after last training session ]
    5—15 (FTF) Parent Questionaire For Evaluation of Development and Behavior of 5 to 15-year-old children. Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF)
