Last year I had the opportunity to consult with the Akili Interactive team as they prepared to introduce their new program, Endeavor™- A Digital Attention Treatment. It is designed to help parents support their kids with ADHD. During my three days with them, I had the opportunity to learn about the research and science behind their program.
I walked away intrigued and optimistic that what the Akili Interactive team was developing, might increase children’s awareness of what they are paying attention to. It can also give parents a vehicle for discussion and evaluation.
Their program, Endeavor™, is delivered through a video game experience. So far, it has been evaluated in over 600 children with ADHD across five clinical studies. The program is designed to help you monitor changes and improvements in your child’s behavior as they engage with a specially designed game.
Given this opportunity, Akili Interactive is waiving the cost of Endeavor™ for families for a 3-month period beginning this week. It is available to qualified families with children diagnosed with ADHD and struggling with chronic attention issues and who are willing to commit to following the Endeavor™ instructions for use. (at this moment, Endeavor™ is only available in the U.S. on iOS devices)
To check if you are eligible, parents of children with ADHD can visit Akili’s enrollment site at GetEndeavor.com
Please let me know if you decide to take advantage of this program. I am interested to hear your feedback. Email Cindy
