Intercultural Education and ADHD: The Use of Virtual Reality as a Means of Intervention and Assessment


People are looking to the digital world for solutions to the challenges they face in their everyday lives, as technology continues to advance rapidly. People with impairments now have equal access to learning opportunities due to technological advancements. ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) has become more prevalent among children and teenagers from ethnic minorities in recent years. Due to challenges with cognitive and metacognitive functioning, this condition is associated with various learning and behavioral difficulties. People can only assimilate into the social environment once they have developed these functions. Children can learn alternative techniques to manage their cognitive deficiencies and adapt to various contexts by developing self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-control through internal attention. With the rapid advancement of research, numerous medical and psychological approaches have been developed for the treatment of ADHD, significantly assisting in the management of symptoms. The current study examines different therapeutic strategies aimed at improving the quality of life for children from racial and ethnic minorities who are affected by ADHD. These strategies include video games with virtual reality (VR) environments.


This article mentions Nesplora AULA, as it was used as a key tool for the research development:

After analyzing the variables in each of the test scenarios, it was discovered that the AULA Nesplora test was effective in differentiating between various types of ADHD and distinguishing them from a control group. Therefore, based on the infor-mation provided by this test, the results of this study may help professionals by guid-ing them towards a more accurate estimation, interpretation, and evaluation.
