This thesis presents an outline and fundamental design for the development of an interactive teaching application for young students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or (ADHD). The project proposes a visual teaching aid used by sixth to ninth grade middle school students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders. The author argues that the combination of various modern instructional methods, focusing on user experience and interactivity, can improve the learning experience for students with ADHD. He also argues that students can achieve higher marks and improve their overall educational experiences by adding visual and interactive elements to the written educational material. The major areas of research include: user experience, innovations in interactive technologies, and assistive teaching, with a goal of improving the way students learn by using present technologies. The information gathered from various resources on the topic will also be used to outline and structure the final product. In addition, the final product will include a written outline of the interactive teaching application and a physical functional interface. In conclusion to the research, the author further states a need for the proposed visual, interactive teaching application in traditional classrooms.
