Computer-Based Program May Help Relieve Some ADHD Symptoms in Children

An intensive, five-week working memory training program shows promise in relieving some of the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children, a new study suggests.Researchers found significant changes for students who completed the program in areas such as attention, ADHD symptoms, planning and organization, initiating tasks, and working memory.
“This program really seemed to make a difference for many of the children with ADHD,” said Steven Beck, co-author of the study an associate professor of psychology at Ohio State University.
“It is not going to replace medication, but it could be a useful complementary therapy.”
