Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common psychiatric disorder in children and adolescents. As implied in the abbreviation, students who are diagnosed with ADHD often encounter learning difficulties due to a lack of concentration and a tendency to be impulsive, which eventually result in poor academic achievement. Although a prescription for ADHD students is available to alleviate the symptoms, it is often not reliable because medicinal effects vary among individuals. As a result, many experts in education tried to incorporate electronic devices to address the issues that ADHD students have. The potential of electronic devices to facilitate students in learning has long been noted by the experts.

The initial triggers could include genetic vulnerabilities, viral or bacterial infections, brain injury, or nutritional deficits.
Pertaining to children, the inability to pay attention is followed by hyperactivity and impulsiveness. Although many children are diagnosed with ADHD, legitimately, there are concerns that children are overmedicated. Maybe parents are as much responsible for over diagnosing children as doctors. The first of the three main symptoms, the inability to pay attention, should be apparent to parents and medical doctors as the normal behavior of a child, especially if the child is between the ages of two and seven.
