Pupils with ADHD use computers less in their schoolwork than other pupils do, a study by Occupational therapy researchers at LiU shows.
“This gives cause for concern. For pupils with ADHD, the computer is an important aid that makes it easier to focus on the task and work at your own pace. It can facilitate learning in both reading and mathematics,” says Vedrana Bolic Baric, who is a doctoral student in occupational therapy and one of the researchers behind the study.
