Dr. Randy Kulman, Ph.D, Founder and President
Dr. Kulman is the founder and president of LearningWorks for Kids. He coordinates our team of psychologists, educators, and digital designers in our quest to make video games good for kids. As a licensed clinical child psychologist who specializes in working with children diagnosed with ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Anxiety, and Autism, Dr. Kulman has become a leading expert on the use of digital technologies for improving executive functioning skills in children.
One of Dr. Kulman’s most important roles is to lead our team of psychologists and educators in our ongoing research into game-based learning, the use of digital technologies in helping children with attentional and learning problems, and using video games for teaching problem solving skills in schools.
Dr. Kulman became interested in the use of video games for teaching thinking skills through his clinical work with children and families. After listening to hundreds of children and parents reporting how engaged kids were in their video game experiences, he began researching methods by which video games could be helpful to children, especially those with ADHD and ASD. It is from this work that Dr. Kulman developed the framework for LearningWorks for Kids. Dr. Kulman is the author of several books, including Playing Smarter in a Digital World, Train Your Brain for Success, and The Gaming Overload Workbook, all of which can be found on Amazon in print and digital format.
