In many ADHD households, Minecraft is more than a hobby; it is an obsession. And while anything in excess is worrisome, the game itself offers a lot of promise. It really can help to build executive function skills, processing speeds, and working memory — if used in conjunction with a balanced play “diet.” But Minecraft is not the only tool at your disposal.

In this webinar, you will learn…

> What makes Minecraft and similar video games so incredibly appealing

> How apps and games can sharpen skills ranging from emotional control to problem-solving acumen

> How to leverage a Minecraft obsession into a learning opportunity

> Minecraft-like games, technologies and apps like Toca Blocks, Terraria, and Eden World Builder

> Specific strategies for setting limits on screen time
