We are creating a small robot that helps elementary school kids with ADHD focus on their homework when they get back from school. Parents with kids who have ADHD are often overwhelmed by the amount of time they spend watching their children doing homework. These parents need an effective and fun way to promote focus in their kids. We have solved this problem through our "focus buddy" - Bippy.

the problem

Elementary school children, especially students with ADHD, face the constant struggle of staying focused when completing their school work at home. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a learning disability that affects the attention span, impulses, and memory of an individual, thus serving as a barrier for students with this disability both in and out of the classroom. Upon speaking to mothers of children with ADHD, we found that children with ADHD struggle to have confidence in their abilities, stay focused on classroom instruction, learn in a style that is tailored to their needs, strengthen their social skills, and fit in with their peers.

OUR solution

Bippy is a robot that utilizes reminders and incentives to help the child focus when doing work. Essentially, the parents will input tasks into the app along with time limits for each task. This information will be conveyed to the child through the interactive robot. Once the child completes a task, they will show bippy their work and the photo will be relayed back to the app where the parents will confirm the completion of a task. Once this task is finished, the child will receive an incentive. this ensures fluency in productivity and safe communication between the child and their parent.
