Lego 13102016University of Sheffield researchers used Lego to involve children with ADHD and their parents in research!

Children and young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can encounter a number ofdifficulties including finding it difficult to concentrate at school, finding it difficult to communicate with others, struggling with change and school life, finding it challenging to form and retain friendships with others…the list goes on!

There are also some really great things about having ADHD such as often having a great sense of humour, being very creative, and when managing their condition in the correct way, can go on to lead extremely successful lives. For example, Michael Phelps (the most decorated Olympian to date), Lewis Smith (Olympic gymnast, also won Celebrity Strictly Come Dancing!), Richard Branson (hugely successful entrepreneur), Will Smith (actor) and Jim Carey (actor) all have ADHD.

Here at the University of Sheffield, we are interested in how technology can help children and young people manage their ADHD properly so that they can go on to lead successful lives.
