Research on Reward:

People respond differently to praise and other rewarding experiences, and this affects everday behaviors. At OIST Children's Research Center, we study how these experiences affect the brain and behavior of those with ADHD. We hope that understanding the power of reward will help better support children.

Discussion with Community Participants:

Parents, teachers, and professionals who support children everyday in Okinawa and Miyazaki will share their experiences. An anime producer will also join us with ideas on clear communication.

We also welcome the event audience to share thier opinions and questions. We want to learn from everyone's expereinces and generate ideas for supporting diverse children.
