Advances & More News / Newscasting from the USA: Skills-Training Program Beneficial for Teen Drivers With ADHD

A computerized skills-training program designed to reduce long glances away from the road is beneficial for teenagers with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a study published online Nov. 30 in the New England Journal of Medicine. Jeffery N. Epstein, Ph.D., from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, and colleagues examined a computerized skills-training program designed to reduce long glances (lasting ≥2 seconds) away from the road in 16- to 19-year-old drivers with ADHD. Participants were randomly assigned to undergo either enhanced Focused Concentration and Attention Learning (intervention) or enhanced conventional driver's education (control) in a 1:1 ratio.
