Brain training offers drug-free alternative for children with ADHD (University of Wollongong)

University of Wollongong researchers have discovered that computer games can help improve behaviour in children with ADHD. Their findings, recently published in the scientific journal ADHD Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders, present a drug-free alternative for the disorder and have provided a basis for the development of a magic-themed computer game designed for children.

According to lead author and Psychology Associate Professor Stuart Johnstone, investigations into alternative ADHD treatments for children began after parents expressed worry about over-medication.

Children can improve their brain training by playing games online, this is very useful for them. Some children play cards for their brain training. I think University of Wollongong has done very good job.!
