The numbers of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and anxiety disorders has spiked in recent years, and the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) has engaged companies ASKnLearn and Fujitsu in order to address this issue through a unique solution. IMH has launched an online portal, ROC-N-ASH, with ASKnLearn providing the multimedia technology in designing games and activities for the portal.
The portal features a role-play computer game that has been developed for anxiety therapy by engaging the child to learn anxiety management skill through fun an play. The therapeutic content for ADHD consists of multimedia enriched dialogues and tasks with interactive computer characters. ASKnLearn has 10 years of experience in educational multimedia content development, we are proud to be a technology enabler for IMH in this venture.
