A Video Game Intervention for Kids with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Treatments to Improve Emotional and
Behavioural Self-Regulation

Children with disorders that impact neurodevelopment often have difficulties with executive functions and regulating emotions. Cognitive-based video game training has been shown to improve outcomes, however, this training has been expensive, has required professional supervision, and has been investigated only within a narrow group of children.

The Mega Team study is testing the effects of a highly engaging, take-home video game-based intervention designed to improve executive functioning in children with various brain-based developmental disorders.
