The aim of this thesis is to investigate the question, whether an eye-gaze based control system can be used in anVR-environment to train the attention of children with ADHD. To achieve this a new game concept shall be created and prototypically implemented for the HTC Vive Pro Eye. The game encourages the user to consciously regulate their gaze and by this, their attention. On the basis of a research on ADHD, eye-gaze control and existing training games requirements for the training game will be established. Afterwards a concept will be developed. This concept will be implemented for the HTC Vive Pro Eye. To evaluate short term effects of the training game it will be tested with children diagnosed with ADHD.
