Supporting adults with ADHD involves a thorough understanding of the condition, efforts to manage symptoms, and solid social support. By combining these elements, adults with ADHD can not only overcome the challenges associated with their condition, but also harness their unique strengths to lead fulfilling lives. It is essential to recognize that ADHD does not define a person, but is simply a part of their identity. With the right support, adults with ADHD can reach their full potential and thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Inattention is one of the pillars of Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). People with ADHD often find it hard to concentrate on long or boring tasks, which can make them easily distracted. They have trouble keeping their attention on activities requiring sustained concentration. Inattention can also manifest itself as frequent forgetfulness of important details, careless errors at work or difficulty following instructions.
In this game, the player must memorize the order of the cards and reproduce it.
The activity trains attention, as the player has to look carefully at the cards to remember the correct order.
In the difficult level, there are also cards added after the presentation of the model to be memorized (there are therefore intruders that the person must not use). You can ask the person to look at the images and, when the time comes to find the right order, ask them to say the right order of the images without looking at the screen. This makes it possible to work on associations, moving from a visual stimulus to an auditory response.
In this game, the player has to count the balloons on the screen according to the color of the model.
This game helps you develop sustained attention, as you have to stay focused throughout the game. The person must not be distracted by balloons of the wrong color and must keep the current count in mind. In the difficult level, you have to count the balloons of two different colors, using the double spot.
In this game, the player has to find the differences between the two proposed models.
This activity focuses on visual analysis, with the user concentrating on the shapes and jerking their eyes from one model to another.
Here we also work on response time, as there is a time limit for the activity. The aim is not just to go fast, otherwise you’ll stimulate impulsivity, but to work on activating and inhibiting the response.
Impulsivity is one of the hallmarks of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults. People with ADHD may have difficulty regulating their immediate reactions to stimuli and impulses. This translates into impulsive decisions, hasty actions, and impulsive behaviors that can sometimes lead to undesirable consequences in everyday life. Adults with ADHD may have difficulty thinking before they act, planning for the long term, and controlling their emotions.
In this game, the player has to draw lines to reduce the enclosures.
Here, you have to wait for the right moment to draw the line without touching the sheep. The person must also have good anticipation skills to foresee the sheep’s movements and therefore know when and where to act.
This activity also allows you to work on planning, because you have to plan your movements to reach the goal.
In this game, the player must click on the moles that appear on the screen.
This game helps you work on inhibition, as there are three types of mole: normal moles to click once, moles with helmets to click twice and moles with glasses not to click. In addition to inhibition, we also work on the ability to adapt the response to the current stimulus.
Depending on the level of difficulty, you can choose the types of moles present in the game.
In this game, the player must click on an arrow to reach all the arrows present. Clicking on an arrow creates a snowball that moves in the direction of the arrow and changes direction each time it encounters a new arrow.
This game allows you to work on planning. The player has to imagine the path taken by the ball and find the right arrow.
Hyperactivity is one of the main symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), although it may manifest itself differently in adults than in children.
In adults with ADHD, hyperactivity often translates into an inner sense of constant agitation, difficulty sitting still, and motor impulsivity.
The greedy snake
In this game, you have to eat as much fruit as possible.
This game is a great way to work on spatial organization, since it requires players to find the fastest route to reach their goal. What’s more, we’re working on divided attention because we have to watch out for the snake and the fruit. You have to be careful not to make impulsive movements to avoid having your own tail eaten by the snake.
In this game, you have to find the shape or color according to the model.
Shapes move across the screen, and the red button must be pressed when the shape passes through the central area. This game therefore trains response time and alternating attention.
In the “color and shape” mode, sometimes you have to find the right shape and sometimes the right color. This allows us to work on adapting to demand, and to avoid remaining focused on a single task.
In this game, you have to pop the balloons of the right color.
This game teaches attention and expectation. The person can try to pop several balloons at once, without touching balloons of other colors. In this way, she works on anticipation and visual skills.
