Condition or Therapy:
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine
What is the goal of this study?
The goal of the study is to research the effects of two different video game-like iPad apps on patients with ADHD. Previous studies have shown that app-based digital therapy may have an impact on working memory and attention in ADHD populations.
Who can join the study?
This study might be a good fit if your child:
- Is between 8 to 12 years old
- Has been diagnosis of ADHD
- Not currently taking ADHD medication (If your child is currently taking ADHD medication a washout period may be an option if appropriate.)
- Not currently participating in behavioral therapy if initiated within the last 4 weeks.
What happens in the study?
- You and your child would come in for a screening visit to see if your child is eligible for the study.
- If you choose to participate, your child would randomly be assigned to one of the two video game apps. Your child will play the assigned game for 25 minutes a day, five days a week for a month. This will take place at home.
- After approximately four weeks of playing the video game, you and your child will be asked to come in for final study visit.
