A very serious video game addiction in South Korea
I just returned from a week spent talking with therapists and educational specialists in Seoul, South Korea.  As in visits to many places in the world, it is exciting to see the enthusiasm that therapists have for applying our brain training tools to help children and adults who struggle—even while they have not really been adapted to meet the special challenges that an arise for an individual operating in a language that is so different from ours.  They’ve seen it work, over and over again; more than 30,000 children have already been trained using Posit Science and Scientific Learning brain training ...

Study: Don ’t overlook sleep difficulties in children with ADHD; they may impair functioning as much as ADHD itself
—– Problems with sleep are common in children with ADHD; in fact, past studies indicate that sleep problems occur in between 70 and 85%. Because of this, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that sleep difficulties should be assessed as part of a comprehensive ADHD evaluation. In some children, significant sleep difficulties may be an important contributor to apparent ADHD symptoms, and could contribute to a child being incorrectly diagnosed. For example, consistent insufficient sleep would certainly contribute to trouble with attention and focus. For other children, sleep problems may co-exist with AD...

At the phenotypic level, first-order dimensions are defined by correlations among symptoms; correlations among first-order dimensions similarly define higher-order domains (e.g., internalizing or externalizing psy...
