Mobile Monday – TACT

The Auditory Concentration Test App (TACT) is a great example of one of our apps that truly improves the quality of life for the user.  Designed by Declan Quinn, Mb., FRCPC, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, the Auditory Concentration Test is a continuous performance test used to measure sustained attention in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders.  The test is designed to show patients and families the responses to the use of a stimulant medication in ADHD (however it is not diagnostic for ADHD).
