A recent meta-analysis showed that popular online brain training programs aren't effective treatment for ADHD. The researchers wrote, "...cognitive training did not decrease ADHD behavioral symptoms, did not improve academic achievement, and in most cases did not even improve the cognitive functions they were trying to improve." The researchers note that this is likely because the aspects of memory targeted by these programs were 'short-term memory' rather than 'working memory.' It is the latter that most with ADHD need to strengthen. As such, they say that revised programs might help ADHD memory issues in the future. The studies analyzed were done with children and teens, as that is the data that exists on these programs. (For details, see The ADHD Report, Volume 22, No. 8)
