Digital Therapeutics

About the event

Innovative treatments for ADHD are few and far between. Current approaches are generally limited to medication, behavioral management, educational support, and therapy. Only in the past few years have new options, built on the use of technology as adjunctive treatment, emerged as a potential intervention.

Dozens of new tools — variously referred to as digital therapeutics, neurotechnologies, and digital medicine — are now being developed and marketed. But what do we know about how they work, who they help, and whether they are effective?

Because digital therapeutics are new “technologies,” some people may expect them to work miracles. But experience with these novel interventions suggests they are best viewed as adjunctive treatments for ADHD. Parents, clinicians, coaches, and physicians have limited information about how these tools work, and some may question whether they are suitable for their children or patients.

In this webinar, Dr. Randy Kulman will define digital therapeutics, neurotechnologies, and digital medicines. He will describe brain training and innovative technologies that use video games, apps, and virtual reality to treat ADHD. He will examine the availability of these tools as well as the pros and cons of neurotechnology as an ADHD treatment.
