Like anything worth doing, EndeavorRx won’t always be easy. But if you stay dedicated and develop the right routines, we hope you’ll see some game-changing improvements in your child’s attention.
Make it a routine
Sticking to a schedule will help make it a habit. Try to find a time and place free from distractions, whether it’s in the morning or afternoon. Whatever works best.
It’s good to be challenged
Remind your child that, at times, the game may be difficult – but that’s all part of the learning process. If it feels hard, that just means you’re challenging your mind to grow stronger.
Breaks are OK, effort is what matters!
It’s perfectly okay to pause for a few minutes in the middle of your session, as long as your child continues to put in good effort.
Commitment is key
It’s like learning to play an instrument – challenging at times, but will pay off in the end! Play the role of coach by providing guidance and encouragement when needed.
Ask them how it’s going
Talk to them regularly about the vibrant, imaginative worlds or interesting characters they’re discovering, and use these check-ins to remind them of all the progress they’ve made so far.
Reminders can help
Make use of the reminder function inside the treatment so you don’t forget to play. It never hurts to add items into your family calendar, too.
My child has unlocked all the levels. What’s next?
Even if your child has unlocked all of the worlds in EndeavorRx, treatment may not be complete! They should continue to play EndeavorRx as instructed by your child’s healthcare professional. They can replay their favourite levels again, attempting to beat previous scores, completing new quests, and unlocking more costumes!
Indications, Safety and Cautions
EndeavorRx is a digital therapeutic indicated to improve attention function as measured by computer-based testing in children ages 8-12 years old with primarily inattentive or combined-type ADHD, who have a demonstrated attention issue. Patients who engage with EndeavorRx demonstrate improvements in a digitally assessed measure, Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA®), of sustained and selective attention and may not display benefits in typical behavioral symptoms, such as hyperactivity. EndeavorRx should be considered for use as part of a therapeutic program that may include clinician-directed therapy, medication, and/or educational programs, which further address symptoms of the disorder.
Of 538 participants using EndeavorRx, 50 participants (9.3%) experienced treatment-related adverse events (probable, likely), and three participants experienced treatment-related adverse events with the digital control, in studies where a control was used. EndeavorRx associated adverse events included frustration (6.1%), headache (1.3%), dizziness (0.6%), emotional reaction (0.4%), nausea (0.4%), and aggression (0.2%). There were no serious adverse events. All adverse events were generally transient. Only 3 events led to device discontinuation, and no subject reported lasting or irreversible effects after discontinuation.
Rx only: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. EndeavorRx should only be used by the patient for whom the prescription was written. For medical questions, please contact your child’s healthcare provider. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911. EndeavorRx is not intended to be used as a stand-alone therapeutic and is not a substitution for your child’s medication.
If your child experiences frustration, emotional reaction, dizziness, nausea, headache, eye-strain, or joint pain while playing EndeavorRx pause the treatment. If the problem persists contact your child’s healthcare provider. If your child experiences a seizure stop the treatment and contact your child’s healthcare provider.
EndeavorRx may not be appropriate for patients with photo-sensitive epilepsy, color blindness, or physical limitations that restrict use of a mobile device; parents should consult with their child’s healthcare provider.
