New video games help children with ADHD control emotions
Researchers from a hospital in the United States have released a series of video games that are designed to help children with ADHD and anxiety. The games help them manage difficult feelings and learn how to calm down on their own without any help.
The games use a form of feedback to track each player’s heart rate. As the games become difficult, the heart rate rises. To remove the extra obstacles and play the game with the least amount of difficulty, a player must mindfully calm down and lower the heart rate.
The goal is to the ability to control emotions and build greater emotional strength.
The games have been tested on kids with significant anger issues, who showed improvement in emotional control after just five days of playing the game.
