More information

Did you know that ADHD is a chronic disorder, has a neurological origin and affects 50% of the child and youth population in mental health? There are studies showing that 20% of school failure is associated with ADHD and there are 2 children with this disorder in each class.

In this clinical case, when implementing VR therapies the boy’s change was so big that the school informed his parents he did not have to work the attention in therapy anymore.

VR improves the treatment of patients with this disorder by using the environments of mindfulness, distraction, breathing, and other techniques as demonstrated in the clinical trial conducted by the Hospital Vall d’Hebron and Sant Joan de Déu. Using VR in your practice also increases the retention rate by keeping the patients more motivated and they are more predisposed to this kind of treatment.
