The Higgs boson was discovered on the 4th of July 2012 with a mass around 125 GeV by ATLAS and CMS experiments at LHC. Determining the Higgs properties (production and decay modes, couplings,...) is an important part of the high-energy physics programme in this decade. A search for the Higgs boson production in association with a top quark pair (tt̄H) at ATLAS  is summarized in this paper at an unexplored center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, which could allow a first direct measurement of the top quark Yukawa coupling and could reveal new physics. The tt̄H analysis in ATLAS is divided into 3 channels according to the Higgs decay modes: H → Hadrons, H → Leptons and H → Photons. The best-fit value of the ratio of observed and Standard Model cross sections of tt̄H production process, using 2015-2016 data and combining all tt̄H final states, is 1:8±0:7, corresponds to 2:8σ (1:8σ) observed (expected) significance.
