Interactive avatar boosts the performances of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in dynamic measures of intelligence

This research examined differences between children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and typically developing students on dynamic measures of intelligence. The study found that ADHD subtypes did not differ in problem solving, and the use of an interactive avatar improved the performance of children with ADHD in the dynamic intelligence test. Overall, the results supported the study’s hypothesis that the function of regulation and feedback from the avatar improved the attention process which boosted children’s performance.
