AttentionGO - cognitive and behavioral variability in children with ADHD symptoms

The project AttentionGO is engaged in the investigation of developmental trajectories of children between the age of 10 and 14 years. Children with symptoms of Attention deficit – hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often have difficulties to regulate their thoughts, feelings and behavior. Those difficulties in self-regulation are linked to cognitive and emotional fluctuations. In this research project it will be examined when exactly these fluctuations occur and in which context. In addition, AttentionGO attempts to improve attention problems and learning strategies. For that reason there will be self-regulation interventions conducted with the children in certain intervals, which already have shown positive effects.
