ADHD and the Brain

ADHD is a condition that involves disruption to core cognitive capacities that help a child focus, avoid distractions and control impulses. We know these capacities can be measured and trained.

Measurement of cognitive capacities and benchmarking to both healthy children and children with diagnosed ADHD is made possible with a rapid and objective assessment for your child through MyBrainSolutions for parents1.

Emerging evidence also suggests that training with computerized games, like those on PoweringUp.com, can strengthen core cognitive and emotional capacities, such as working memory2 and emotion recognition3. This can help remediate the disruptions often observed in children with ADHD, or help to optimize skills in children without diagnosed clinical conditions.
