Free Guide to Brain-Boosting Video Games
Many kids with ADHD love screen time. Their parents? Not so much. Help your child pick video games that boost attention and executive skills with this guide.
The moment your daughter gets home, she rushes to her computer to start playing Minecraft. And good luck calling your son to dinner once he starts playing his XBox — he hyperfocuses on the game and tunes out everything you say.
It seems that video games are an inescapable part of childhood these days, and kids with ADHD may be more susceptible to their allure than others. Let’s face it: getting your child to give up video games once she’s hooked is a futile effort, so it’s important that you steer her toward games that actually teach skills. That’s why we’ve put together this download — it’s a complete list of ADDitude-approved video games, including:
- Bad Piggies
- And much more!
These games aren’t just mindless entertainment. They’ll actually help your child build critical skills like planning, time management, and hand-eye coordination — all of which are typically underdeveloped in kids with ADHD.
