Several automated tests have been developed in recent years (ADHD) to improve the accuracy of diagnosing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Usually, it would be interpreted by medical experts based on a clinical history that included evaluation papers filled out by teachers, caretakers, or other relevant parties. Many experts have questioned this method of diagnosing ADHD because both medical professionals and caregivers are prone to subjective judgment. According to many studies, adopting new digital diagnostic tools in the form of games may provide much more essential diagnostic indicators for kids with ADHD. A game that fosters creativity sets distinct goals to be achieved, provides a feedback system that encourages players, and yields tangible outcomes that will appeal to kids more. Whether or not they are played in virtual reality environments, the present study looks at the use and effectiveness of video games to pinpoint ADHD symptoms.
