With Play Attention, Jason has learned to understand how to focus and how to pay attention. He has applied what he learned from the games in the real world, in school, and at home. After playing for over 50 hours (about 6 months), Jason can tell us when he is tired and not able to do well, when he is flustered and his focus will be lacking, or when he is happy and his focus goes up. He has also learned how he can adjust his own mood so that he can be able to focus...

My husband came home at the time and he realized I couldn’t speak. He rushed me to our hospital which was fairly close.

I also took her to a visiting optometrist from Denmark who advised on a weird protocol.

I played tennis on the ATP tour, ranked 270 in the world, ranked 6 in South Africa, ranked number 1 in Germany in +35. Why did I improve with age? My understanding of emotional intelligence improved.
I started working with Eretz about 3 months ago. When I first met him, he had a difficult time staying in his chair and refraining from touching every part of my computer. Through the weeks we developed a very good relationship and I learned that almost every student in his class was getting a “home run” daily. A home run was a sign of a good day. When I met Eretz in May, he had only received one all year.
I learned that he was always in trouble with the teacher and always seemed to be singled...
