ADHD at School

College Student - Design Project

Hi! I am a product design and mechanical engineering student at Lehigh University. I am working on a year long project to design a line of toys/products for children with ADHD/ADD.

Are there any toys that your child really loves?
What makes it their favorite toy/activity?
Are there any items they bring to school to keep them focused during class time?
What are their favorite subjects in school, and why?

Any insight you have is wonderful and very appreciated! You can also email me directly at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you would like!

Thanks so much!!

Hi,
Typically anything that has a lot of lights and a lot of movement.

I think a cool timer and alarm clock needs to be made for teenagers. Something that would be fun or interesting for them to use. The timers I have found are boring looking and made for adults or little kids, nothing in between. Just a suggestion about what is missing out there. I’ve been on the search for such items.

Like for a 17 year old.

Love the idea of a cool teen alarm clock!  Each kid is different so it’s hard to say what toys are best.  My son loved Lego but also found it very frustrating if it was too hard to put together. ADHD kids are wired to love computer games, which is actually a problem as they get older.  Some non-computer game that is engaging would be fantastic !
