Videogame in development to assist with task switching in kids with Prader-Willi

Task switching can be difficult for some children with Prader-Willi and can sometimes be a trigger for temper outbursts. Irish researchers have been collaborating with children who have Prader-Willi syndrome to develop a videogame TASTER which trains the ability to task switch. At the recent 2016 IPWSO conference, the researchers reported positive results in a small group of 4 children with PWS who used the game.
