  2. 2. WHAT !IS ADHD?Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that becomes apparent in some children in the preschooland early school years. It is hard for these children to control their behaviorand/or pay attention. It is estimated that between 3 and 5 percent ofchildren have ADHD, or approximately 2 million children in the UnitedStates. This means that in a classroom of 25 to 30 children, it is likely thatat least one will have ADHD.
  3. 3. A LITTLE
ABOUT THIS PRESENTATIONWe were requested to run a series of theinterview as a part of our TechnologyEntrepreneurship course at StanfordUniversity.For this assignment, we tested ourhypothesis about our value proposition bytalking with potential customers face toface. The more face to face interviews withhad with our users/customers, the betterour product will become…
  4. 4. INTERVIEW
SEGMENTSTHE PSYCHOLOGISTS.We categorized our interview in three differentsegments.§  The patients.§  The people who are in touch with patients.§  The medical authorities.THE PATIENTSTHE PARENTS
  5. 5. OUR
USERSINTERFACE DESIGNWe can not put patients as our direct users as far asthis system is a diagnostic system for ADHD peoplewho are between 6 to 13, so, although they can beuser of the testing system, preferably, we suggestTeachers or their Parents use this testing system forhaving more accurate test, whereas we would haveanother special diagnosis test for medical team. So, we started our interviews with MedicalAuthorities.
  6. 6. INTERVIEW
WITH PSYCHOLOGISTSWe had interview with three well-knownIranian Psychologies who helped us abouthow we should design our system to beuseful for them as well as their patients.They agreed to help us step by step in apilot scheme to have a mobile desk at theirinstitute for diagnosing their patients beforeseen by specialist to check how much thesystem is reliable based on the final resultby them.Special thanks to Tehran PsychiatryInstitute, Rouzbeh Hospital andAliasghar Child Hospital.PSYCHOLOGISTS
  7. 7. INTERVIEW
WITH OTSWe had five interviews with OccupationalTherapist which went so well, as one of ourteam is a OT who helped us a lot to havean efficient talk with her colleagues athospitals. We’ve reviewed the testquestions and scheme with them. Special thanks to Tehran PsychiatryInstitute, Rouzbeh Hospital and NavabSafavi Hospital.OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS
  8. 8. INTERVIEW
WITH UNIVERSITY LECTURERSWe had three interviews with someuniversity lecturers at AmirkabirUniversity of Technology (TehranPolytechnics) and Iran Medical Universityand Tehran Medical University ofScience, who are actively involved inADHD research especially in filling a gapbetween diagnosis and treatment. We’ve talked about how we can developgaming solutions to fill this gap for all of ourusers who were investigated as ADHD.UNIVERSITY LECTURERS
  9. 9. INTERVIEW
WITH TEACHERSWe had two interviews with teachers in twoBoy/Girls elementary school in Iran which isthe critical age for recognizing ADHD as itwould become harder and harder when theybeing mature. We’ve discussed about howthey can use our system in referring theirstudents to the medial authorities for furtherinvestigation. So, they agreed to test studentson a regular base in our pilot scheme andrefer any suspicious case in our medicalpartners. As well as emergency situation, whoa teacher ask their colleagues to run this testfor a special student based on the ADHDsymptoms which he/she observe in his/herstudent.SCHOOL TEACHERS
  10. 10. INTERVIEW
WITH PARENTSWe interviewed almost eight parents whodeal with ADHD patients and mostly hadargue with their child schools how did notrecognize this problem in their kids in earlystage as it could helped them a lot. Theywere so keen to see our system, which werun a sample system of our PHP test forthem. They were looking for moreinteractive test, which our graphic andcoding developers are working on.PARENTS
  11. 11. INTERVIEW
WITH PATIENTSWe’ve talked with them about the effect ofhaving these systems at schools torecognize the symptoms in an early stage.Several of those kids were not happy bylabeling them as Hyperactive or a patient,which we decided to change our last stageof showing result to something different.They were so enthusiastic about our projectwhen we run a graphical test for them. So,definitely, one of our other phases andgeneration of our project in future would begaming options.PATIENTS
  12. 12. WHAT
WE LEARNEDWhen properly treated, children andadolescents with ADHD can lead verynormal and productive lives. In fact,many traits found in individuals withADHD can help them to become verysuccessful later in life. It should benoted that a loving, supportive andconsistent environment is essential forthe positive growth and develop of allchildren and especially those withADHD or other learning disabilities.People with ADHD tend to haveaverage or above average intelligence.They are often very creative andusually have a high energy level. Theseindividuals also are frequently verysensitive and highly affectionate. In the last few years, it has becomemore likely for adults to be diagnosedwith ADHD and start on medication.These may be individuals who werenot properly identified when they werechildren. In other cases, adults havelearned to compensate for theirdisorder and become very successfulindividuals. In fact, some may "overc o m p e n s a t e " a n d b e c o m eextraordinarily successful.Parents can benefit greatly byparticipating in a support group alongwith other parents of ADHD kids. Parents should refer to nationallyrecognized Support Organizations andtrusted Professional Associations forreliable information and effectivesupport.
  13. 13. WHAT
WE LEARNED : DIAGNOSISSome parents see signs of inattention, hyperactivity,and impulsivity in their toddler long before the childenters school. The child may lose interest in playinga game or watching a TV show, or may run aroundcompletely out of control. But because childrenmature at different rates and are very different inpersonality, temperament, and energy levels, itsuseful to get an experts opinion of whether thebehavior is appropriate for the childs age. Parentscan ask their childs pediatrician, or a childpsychologist or psychiatrist, to assess whether theirtoddler has an attention deficit hyperactivity disorderor is, more likely at this age, just immature orunusually exuberant.ADHD may be suspected by a parent or caretaker ormay go unnoticed until the child runs into problemsat school. Given that ADHD tends to affectfunctioning most strongly in school, sometimes theteacher is the first to recognize that a child ishyperactive or inattentive and may point it out to theparents and/or consult with the school psychologist.Because teachers work with many children, theycome to know how "average" children behave inlearning situations that require attention and self-control. However, teachers sometimes fail to noticethe needs of children who may be more inattentiveand passive yet who are quiet and cooperative, suchas those with the predominantly inattentive form ofADHD.Ideally, the diagnosis should be made by aprofessional in your area with training in ADHD or inthe diagnosis of mental disorders. Child psychiatristsand psychologists, developmental/behavioralpediatricians, or behavioral neurologists are thosemost often trained in differential diagnosis.
  14. 14. WHAT
WE LEARNED : DIAGNOSISThe first task of the professional conducting theevaluation is to gather information that will rule outother possible reasons for the childs behavior.Among possible causes of ADHD-like behavior arethe following: A sudden change in the childs life—the death of a parent or grandparent; parentsdivorce; a parents job loss , Undetected seizures,such as in petit mal or temporal lobe seizures , Amiddle ear infection that causes intermittent hearingproblems , Medical disorders that may affect brainfunctioning , Underachievement caused by learningdisability and Anxiety or depression. Ideally, in ruling out other causes, the specialistchecks the childs school and medical records.There may be a school record of hearing or visionproblems, since most schools automatically screenfor these. The specialist tries to determine whetherthe home and classroom environments are unusuallystressful or chaotic, and how the childs parents andteachers deal with the child.The specialist interviews the childs teachers andparents, and may contact other people who knowthe child well, such as coaches or baby-sitters.Parents are asked to describe their childs behaviorin a variety of situations. They may also fill out arating scale to indicate how severe and frequent thebehaviors seem to be.In most cases, the child will be evaluated for socialadjustment and mental health. Tests of intelligenceand learning achievement may be given to see if thechild has a learning disability and whether thedisability is in one or more subjects.
  15. 15. WHAT
WE LEARNED : DIAGNOSISIn looking at the results of these various sources ofinformation, the specialist pays special attention tothe childs behavior during situations that are themost demanding of self-control, as well as noisy orunstructured situations such as parties, or duringtasks that require sustained attention, like reading,working math problems, or playing a board game.Behavior during free play or while getting individualattention is given less importance in the evaluation.In such situations, most children with ADHD are ableto control their behavior and perform better than inmore restrictive situations.In most cases, the child will be evaluated for socialadjustment and mental health.

  16. 16. WHAT
WE LEARNED : DIAGNOSIS / ACCOMPANY TO ADHDA correct diagnosis often resolves confusion aboutthe reasons for the childs problems that lets parentsand child move forward in their lives with moreaccurate information on what is wrong and what canbe done to help. Once the disorder is diagnosed, thechild and family can begin to receive whatevercombination of educational, medical, and emotionalhelp they need. This may include providingrecommendations to school staff, seeking out amore appropriate classroom setting, selecting theright medication, and helping parents to managetheir childs behavior.Some disorder which may accompany to ADHD thatwe should work on in our system for having moreaccurate test, but to be honest, these disorders canreally accompany with ADHD even when they beeseen by Drs.
