This work deals with designing and creating a digital game for mobile devices that challenges and trains the executive function "shifting" of children with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Elements that are important for addressing the executive functions "shifting" and designing appealing gameplay for children with ADHD are identified through intensive literature research and analysis of already existing applications. Thus, tests with children will be conducted to ensure that the game's design is friendly and understandable to children. Finally, these findings will be used in the form of adaptations and extensions for the development of the prototype to design an appealing game that challenges and trains the executive function.
