“Play Attention will allow me to know how to stay mentally active throughout my ‘golden’ years.”

sam 300x214When I first found out about PLAY ATTENTION, I just turned 61 years old & had spent the previous 15 years (since being diagnosed in 2001) going thru books, counselors, EEG-feedback, coaching, & online programs / “therapy games” to address my issues enough to provide hopefulness that I’d be able to get a handle enough to operate in the “real world”, as a house-husband / cook /pet owner[2 dogs]/ & guitarist in community ensembles. After only limited & temporary benefits from those resources, I decided to try the PLAY ATTENTION program, especially after learning about the technological improvements over the previous neurofeedback sensors. It was gratifying to find out that the learning paradigms involved in the PA games, were effective in acquiring the coping skills that I needed to make my different “hats” much more easily worn, after more than 4 decades of undiagnosed...

“Luke is a dear, loving, and intelligent boy. His symptoms were very difficult to manage in the past, when we did not know what we were dealing with.”

Our son Luke aged 8 years started using Play Attention on 26/12/15 to present. Due to work commitments increasing and travel in our jobs, in the last 2 months we have not been as vigilant to the use of it as we have been previously. We are hoping to improve this situation shortly.

Play Attention has been a successful adjunct to his collection of therapies with positive measurable outcomes.

He is a dear, loving, and intelligent boy. His symptoms were very difficult to manage in the past, when we did not know what we were dealing with.Luke 2 150x150 We had mixed reports from various sectors stating this diagnosis or that, and it has been a real journey separating the wheat from the chaff. We are becoming more discerning regarding therapy that actually works, vs therapy that mainstream medicine habitually offers regardless of improvement.

One of Luke’s main challenges was around task completion. He...

“Emmanuel’s mother states she has not had a call or email from the teacher this year, which is amazing.”

EmmanuelEmm1 137x150 In August 2015, Emmanuel joined our Play Attention student group. He was starting 4th grade and diagnosed with ADHD. According to his Mom, Emmanuel was in trouble everyday in 3rd grade as he struggled with impulse control of outburst in the classroom. In addition to his impulsive behavior, he was experiencing trouble with reading and math.

The benefit of Play Attention for Emmanuel was evident almost immediately with the stopping of outbursts in the classroom in less than one month after starting Play Attention. His mother states she has not had a call or email from the teacher this year, which is amazing. Emmanuel says he has only had one warning and he is very happy to be in control of his volcano mouth.

Three months after starting Play Attention Emmanuel’s reading skills began to improve and he was able to achieve a reading score. His continued use of Play Attention has...

My daughter ​Layla started facing problems in reading in grade one.​ ​She was doing poorly at school​, so ​​I took her to various specialists​. ​I took Layla 150x150her to an occupational therapist who said she ​did not have good eye coordination​. Later​ I took her to an educational therapist who said she need​ed​ more attention from her dad,​ (my husband​), who​ travels extensively​ because of his work​​.

“Frederic’s progress with the play attention system has been beyond anything we could have expected.”

Freddy Picture For PlayAttention 150x150Frederic was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome in 2012 at the age of 8 years old. His existing school refused to continue with his education because they had no facilities to deal with a child on the autistic spectrum. Consequently he spent two years at home whilst we desperately searched for a solution. In September 2014, Frederic was rescolarised in a private school with a classroom helper.

His school assessment at the start of December 2015 stated “unable to evaluate – due to Frederic’s inability to convey if he has actually learned anything!” Not very promising for a 11 year old boy after 18 months of hard work by his teacher and classroom helper.

However, on the 27 December 2015, Frederic started his very first session with the Play Attention system and everything has changed.

Frederic’s progress with the play attention system has been beyond anything we could have...

A difference in just 3 months!

AndrewOur son has always been advanced for his age. Potty trained before he was 2, reading books before he was 3 and the list could go on and on. He is creative, perceptive, original, works best by himself, must finish the task at hand, he is sensitive and generous. It was not until 3rd grade that some of these wonderful traits also became a hardship.

At times anxiety would take over his school days. Play Attention’s Mental Math games have been the best for his test taking at school. Yes, he has known his math facts since kindergarten so this is not a challenge for him. Or is it? He must focus to reveal the question and stay focused to reveal the answer. Three months ago a timed test in the morning would spin his whole day into a negative cycle. He knows the answers but only having 2 minutes to complete the task would put such a fear into his heart that he physically could not get the...
