Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the performance differences in "spot the difference” by ADHD, non-ADHD, and faked-ADHD individuals.
  2. learn the application of "spot the difference" in ADHD assessment.
  3. understand the research on eye tracking with ADHD individuals.


This paper presentation is designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the popular game “spot the difference” on discriminating attention deficit and hyperactivity impulsivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. The differences in time, accuracy, visual strategies, and eye-tracking variables between ADHD, faking ADHD, and non-ADHD groups will be discussed. We will provide preliminary evidence for the use of “spot the difference” game as an ADHD screener.
