By briefly presenting the assessment, treatment, and prevention of problem video gaming, social media misuse, and other related digital addictions among 8 to 25 year-olds, this presentation discusses the impact of our technophilic culture on child development, more precisely brain development. Insight on how we can minimize the negative impact our technophilic culture can have on infants, children and adolescents, as well as managing and understanding assistive technologies in education, will be discussed.
