Can an ADD child get addicted to video games?

I have an 11 year old son with ADD. A doctor has stated that there is research showing that kids can become addicted to violent video games and that gaming raises cortisol levels in people who play video games. A counselor says that ALL electronics can cause the above two situations.

What is your take on this? What about active video games such as Dance Revolution or the wii games? How should a parent address this? Take them off all games permanently or just take a break? Help!

We live in Beirut, Lebanon where my 19 year old son, who is diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD, will be attending the American University for Science & Technology (AUST). AUST recently approved a program for students with disabilities and the university administration is working with the parents to develop an effective program. Can you provide us with any recommendations for things we should consider, such as assistive technology, teaching methods, training of teachers, etc., to guide us in this effort?

We recently purchased an AlphaSmart Neo for our son, who is dyslexic and dysgraphic. We have also tried the Mavis Beacon program, but he thinks it is boring. Do you know of another good typing program?

Can you recommend any computer games that can help my daughter understand math concepts?

I was wondering if there were any good computer games to help my nine-year-old daughter in math. She has been diagnosed with dyslexia and although she is almost at grade level in reading, she is unable to remember and understand math concepts. If you know of any games we could get for the summer, please let me know.

My son is going into 11th grade. He has a learning disability with a very "hands on" learning style. However, he cannot write to save his life, take notes, etc. What computer programs do you recommend? What laptops would you recommend?

What are some programs to use with students experiencing difficulties in math in grades 3-5? Our school is one for children with learning disabilities and ADHD. We really want to help the kids. Thank you.
