Dr Petty, do you know if there are any of these devices available for home use. It sure seems like they would interface nicely with a home computer.

Dear Stuart,

I am sorry for the delay in responding.

We are very interested in systems that can be hooked up to a laptop, particularly since kids usually have no problem with focus when it is something that they enjoy. As I think that I have said before, the problem is not so much a inattention as it is a problem with regulating attention. That is why "Hyperfocus" is also a feature of ADHD.

There are a number of systems on the market, and the reports from children and adults who have tried them have been mixed.

The best ones that we have found so far have been:
Play Attention:
and the Brain Trainer:

I constantly get information about other systems, and they may be great, but without any data or hands on experience, I have to reserve judgment.

Another approach that I have been playing with over the last couple of years is something that was not designed for ADHD at all, but often seems to be very helpful. It is the Wild Divine programs:

I got one of the very first demo models, and there have been some significant upgrades over time. I have no links with the company, but I think that it can be an extremely helpful product for all kinds of people and problems.

With kind regards,
