FDA approves video game for treating ADHD in kids | AP News

This could become a new reality for children that are suffering with ADHD. Getting children to take medicine is a challenge but playing video games might not be as big as a task. The video game will use different tasks to help improve cognitive functioning including sensory and motor tasks. The video game is called EndeavorRX and it has already made history as the first FDA approved video game being used in what is called digital therapy. The game will be available to children 8-12 with a prescription and a diagnosis of ADHD.
