“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...

“We are very happy with the results we have seen so far and look forward to the progress our children will make playing on Play Attention.”

We have two young boys, and I was looking for something to help improve their attention and responsibility for school work. I found Play Attention while searching online. I was very excited when I found and researched their program.

JD, 14, our oldest who has Aspergers, is very smart, but has trouble focusing in school. He also is behind in auditory possessing development than others his age. His social skills need work too. Play Attention has games that cover all these areas and more. He has been cooperative in playing the games for three months now. We are seeing progress in his attention to his school work and social skills. He seems to be more aware of social issues and occurrences. My husband and I are very happy when those light bulb moments occur.

Bradley, our 11 year old, is in his first year of middle school where everything you do counts more than elementary. He did well in...

Overall I am pleased to say that he did much better than my expectation.

My name is Max, and I first played Play Attention when I was 16 years old. I am one who has to concentrate hard to study for my iGCSE [Cambridge International Examinations] and GCSE exams [General Certificate of Secondary Education]. It had not been easy, as I have to study 8 subjects. I changed from a US school system to a British system 3 years ago.

My parents wanted me to learn to focus and concentrate better, so they bought Play Attention to help me. My mum found Play Attention on the internet. I think working with Play Attention has helped, as I was easily distracted in the past. My dad was guiding me whenever I played Play Attention. When I worked on an exercise with Play Attention, I sometimes got frustrated because the object did not move according to my focus. So I have to restart the game and the second time it was usually better. I feel happier when I scored good points from...

“I have noticed a big difference in how Keara focuses on her homework, and in what she is able to remember and understand.”

I purchased the Play Attention software three months ago for my 10 year old daughter, Keara. She has had a lot of challenges with attention, focus, memory, comprehension and communication since she was very young.

When Keara first started using the Play Attention software, she was frustrated, fidgeted a lot, and complained that the games were too long. I created a sticker chart, and for every game she completed she earned some stickers. The better her score on each game, the more stickers she got. Keara loves the TY Beanie Boo stuffed animals, so we agreed on how many stickers she had to earn for me to buy her a new one. This approach really helped to motivate Keara to keep playing the games at the beginning.

She preferred to play only two games a day, which took about 10 minutes. To complete the recommended hour of games per week, I got Keara to play two games, six days a week. At...

Kathy had returned to her work as an upholsterer and, in her own words, “I have many more years of real life ahead of me.” Larry put it simply, “I got my wife back.”

Kathy’s Story

Kathy and her husband Larry, came to me at my clinic, Brain Fitness Center, in Parkersburg, WV, in the spring of 2011. She was 67 years old and had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two years earlier. The couple had seen several primary care physicians, searching for some type of treatment that would allow Kathy to live more effectively and productively in her daily life. She was told to accept the diagnosis, go home, and live with the disease the best way she could.

Eventually they were referred to a primary care physician who was familiar with my clinic and some of the programs I used. This doctor contacted me and asked if I thought any of the therapies I used might help, since the medical field didn’t have much to offer Alzheimer’s patients.

When they arrived at the clinic, Larry did most of the talking. Kathy’s shoulders were stooped and her eyes downcast. She was...
