Although this is the question that most parents ask us, the first thing we have to clarify is that ADHD is a disorder, and not a disease as such, and therefore it is not something that has to be “solved” properly talking.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can have many degrees and present in multiple ways, depending on whether one symptom or another predominates. It is not a disease that has to be “cured” or “fixed”.
The objective should not be to “solve” ADHD, but rather to learn to live with the limitations that ADHD may imply, in the school, family, social, or professional context.
Learning to live with ADHD sometimes entails pharmacological treatment in the most severe cases. However, a multimodal treatment approach is necessary, which should also emphasize the psychological and pedagogical aspects. Within this context, it is in this last aspect that we propose our Cognitive Training Plans based on chess as a complementary treatment for ADHD. These plans bring together a set of exercises specifically designed to improve the cognitive abilities that require more work in people diagnosed with ADHD: attention, concentration, memory, spatial vision, calculation, planning, time management. On many occasions, physical and motor skills work is also advisable, especially helped by specialized physiotherapy in ADHD and psychomotor skills.
