In this study, the severity of students’ ADHD symptoms was predicted by how they performed on Empowered Brain (a suite of therapeutic augmented-reality games for social-emotional skills). ADHD affects 11% of US students, yet diagnosis is subjective, often delayed, and with disagreement among clinicians. In the study, hyperactivity and inattention were assessed by validated clinical standards, and compared to scores on Empowered Brain smartglasses-based games. Students with worse ADHD symptoms had significantly lower scores on these social-emotional games. This suggests that this artificial-intelligence based tool, which prior studies showed to be therapeutic, can also quantify key ADHD symptoms known to be diagnostic. If confirmed, Empowered Brain could be used by educators, parents, clinicians to objectively identify ADHD symptom level early on, in real-world contexts e.g. the classroom. View this paper.
