Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. While medication and behavioural interventions are commonly used to manage ADHD symptoms, there is growing interest in alternative approaches like cognitive training. No two people are exactly alike. Even two individuals with ADHD will have different strengths and weaknesses, and it’s important to support them with an approach that is customizable to their needs.

Many ADHD students and their parents grapple with behaviours that can be puzzling. While attention-related difficulties are the hallmark of ADHD, research suggests that other cognitive skills may be lower (and the true root cause of issues related to focus and learning). These include working memory, executive functions, processing speed, and cognitive flexibility. Addressing these underlying cognitive weaknesses alongside attention deficits can contribute to more comprehensive ADHD management.
