Nearly 1 in 10 children in the U.S. have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). As of 2010, an estimated 10.4 million children and teens under age 18 were diagnosed with the condition. Brain Resource, Inc., a developer of innovative tools to improve brain health, recently launched an interactive resource to help families with children impacted by the condition manage the symptoms of ADHD.
MyBrainSolutions for Parents empowers families to work together to improve their child's skills that can in turn, help them to navigate the classroom, playground, at home and in life. Through a scientifically validated assessment test, parents can gain a better understanding of their child's unique pattern of strengths and relative limitations.
Based on the assessment report, parents can develop a tailored brain training plan on the companion site, PoweringUp.com, which includes skill building brain games to enhance attention, concentration and memory.
