SOFIA is an evidence-based health intervention to support families of children with ADHD.

A customized personal experience that addresses your specific needs. SOFIA sends reminders and educational messages about your child’s medication and treatment, how to handle daily activities, school, family relationships, and ADHD in general.

SOFIA helps you with Information, tips, tricks and tools that actually help you tackle the tough situations! We believe by providing parents with the right information and tools they will be better able to guide, communicate with and help their child manage their ADHD.

ADHD is a prevalent condition, affecting at least 10% of children and 5% of adults. If untreated, it is associated with a wide range of adverse outcomes including depression, bipolar disorder, addictions, criminality, car crashes, and traumatic brain injury, among many others. Despite strong evidence that medication treatment for ADHD is safe and effective and mitigates many of these very serious and consequential adverse outcomes, adherence to treatment is extremely poor. To offset this problem, in collaboration with MEMOTEXT (a technology company) we developed a digital health intervention based on text messaging called SOFIA (Simple Online Family Intervention for ADHD). SOFIA not only improves adherence, but also educates and supports patients and families with ADHD. Initial testing of SOFIA in General Medicine, Pediatrics and Psychiatry showed highly positive results.
