New Program Helps ADHD Teenagers, ‘Worst Drivers On Road’

Teenagers with ADHD said to be 'worst on the road'

A new product may make the roads a safer place. A University of Buffalo researcher created a new driving simulation machine that is said to improve driving skills on some of the most potentially dangerous individuals on the roads. The dangerous individuals are teenagers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Researchers have developed a program that can not only improve driving skills of these potentially dangerous teens, but also can help improve relationships with friends and family.

The simulation machine is said to provide information and graphic demonstrations of potential hazards of consequences that may happen when failing to pay attention driving.

The most common problem is texting and driving.

The National Institute of Health’s National Institute of Child Health and Human Development offered a $2.8 million grant to make this possible.

Because of ADHD symptoms, parents have long explained concerns about the transition from childhood to adolescent age and the potential dangers of children with ADHD becoming drivers.

Research showed that teenage drivers were the worst of anybody, and teenage drivers with ADHD noticed even worse driving ability.

This program hopes to create safer drivers and better relationships among ADHD drivers and parents.
