There are often misconceptions about the connection between technology and ADHD. Many people assume that technology use can lead to or negatively impact those with ADHD. Research has proven that this simply isn’t true.
What we do know, thanks to research, is that kids with ADHD can actually benefit from targeted technology use. Used wisely, technology allows children and adults with ADHD to stay organized, multi-task, and focus. Many people with ADHD crave the rapid fire pace of information that many technology applications are known to provide. Consider how much you can get done in a short amount of time on your computer, phone, or tablet. This information and application management may seem overwhelming to you at times, but to adults and kids with ADHD it can actually have a calming effect that requires their brains to rapidly process new content.
