Introduction

• There are well-established pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),1-4 but limitations to these treatments likely contribute to poor adherence over time. There is an ongoing need for novel approaches to ADHD treatment.
• AKL-T01 is an investigational therapeutic digital intervention in development for the treatment of attention and inhibitory control deficits in pediatric ADHD. – A proof-of-concept study of AKL-T01 demonstrated feasibility of use, improved attention, response inhibition, and working memory in pediatric patients with ADHD.5
• We present primary efficacy and safety results of the randomized Software Treatment for Actively Reducing Severity of ADHD (STARS-ADHD) trial of AKL-T01 versus an active control in pediatric patients with ADHD.
