Results: Regarding the data , effect size of the therapy in two groups analysed with cohen d test. Effect size in spatial span (ssp) and spatial working memory (SWM) for test Group was( 2/38 and 3/87) and for control group was( 0/73 and 1/63). The changes mean in ssp and swm for test group was (1.3 and 17/2) and for control group was (0/25 and 3/8).
