Fidgeting Improves Attention in ADHD Youth

When a child fidgets in class, the teacher might assume that he or she is not paying attention. However, for children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the opposite may be true. A study from the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) MIND Institute finds that fidgeting might improve cognitive performance for young people with ADHD. The…

Neurocognitive Therapy Improves ADHD Symptoms

For children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), school can be a struggle, but a new therapy may change that. The therapy, tested in a recent study, uses a computer game to help children with ADHD focus in school. The study found that, after playing the game, children with ADHD had improved social behavior and improved social…

Kids with ADHD Should Fidget

Most children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) fidget and squirm at school. A number of interventions teach the same children to hold still. New research from the University of Central Florida (UCF) may change how ADHD is treated. The study found that children with ADHD are better able to think and learn when they fidget. For…

ADHD Rates Lower at High Altitudes

The likelihood of your child having attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) depends, at least in part, on where you live. A new analysis from the University of Utah finds that the rate of ADHD decreases as altitude increases. That is, the higher up you live, the less likely you are to have ADHD. The findings suggest that…

CDC Report on ADHD Treatment Rates

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) examines the types of treatment used among children aged 4 to 17 during 2009 and 2010. The study’s findings provide a snapshot of the types of interventions used to treat ADHD. One notable finding is that around half of preschool aged children receive…

Collaborative, Family-Centered Care for ADHD

When supporting children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), involving the whole family may be the best course of action. A new study from Boston University School of Medicine finds that training and supporting parents to offer collaborative care to their children with ADHD can reduce hyperactivity and other ADHD-related symptoms. The results promote the idea that…

ASD Genes Linked to Slightly Higher Intelligence

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are linked to complex sets of genes. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with other researchers in the United Kingdom and Australia, investigated whether the genes associated with ASD and ADHD could also be connected to higher intelligence. Their study revealed that genes…

Students with ADHD Need Evidence-Based Support

High school students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) receive a lot of support at school, a new study reports. However, most of the services adolescents with ADHD receive are not evidence-based. The study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) finds that high school students…

Motor and Social Deficits in Autism May Be Linked

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have more trouble with certain motor skills than their peers, reports a new study from the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore. The researchers compared children with ASD, children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and typically developing children. They found that motor and social deficits in autism and ADHD,…

Genetics, Symptoms Bridge Autism and ADHD

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often co-occur. In fact, as many as 44% of people with ASD may also meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. Research from VU University Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden finds that there is a genetic link between autism and ADHD….

What is iLs?

iLs is a complementary approach to brain fitness which can be integrated into a broad variety of educational, therapeutic and self-improvement programs. In the same way we can train our bodies to become stronger and healthier, iLs trains the brain to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively. With better synaptic connectivity, we perform better. It’s about as simple as that.

We start with music and movement, and then gradually integrate language and cognitive processes. The exercises appear simple but become increasingly difficult as we add new layers for simultaneous processing. The program involves no computers or screens of any type. Someone once referred to iLs as “a boot camp for the brain.” We’d like to think of it more as play, and we all know we work hardest when we play!
