Luke has been experiencing steady improvement

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. 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...

Thank you Play Attention for the encouragement and support

Nathan just graduated from Grade 6 last week.  June also marks his 10th full month of Play Attention.  When Nathan began the program, he struggled with sitting still and focusing for even the briefest time period.  As a coach, I was kept very busy marking every movement, fidget, distracted and off-task behavior. We began with 15 minute sessions 3 times per week and worked hard to establish the routine, which, it turns out, is a major part of the ‘battle’.  Once the Play Attention routine was established, the arguing beforehand and the disruptive behaviors during the program diminished to the point where, as coach, I have virtually no behaviors to report during his sessions.  I have kept a journal of his achievements and am delighted to report that Nathan now is on Advanced levels in all games and is actually weaning off the Attention Stamina game.  He now...

For our family, Play Attention is an essential component of a holistic approach to ADHD.

Pablo was diagnosed with ADHD in 1st grade. We decided to put him on medication. Pablo’s teacher did not think the medication significantly improved his ability to focus, so we switched to a different, more powerful medication. He did pay more attention, but at the expense of his appetite and his personality. We were aware he was less playful than he had once been, but we accepted it as the price to pay to ensure academic survival. That is, until we met a wonderful doctor who specializes in non-medical treatment of ADHD who recommended that we consult a nutritional specialist to explore dietary causes of inattention and consider Play Attention as a tool to retrain the brain to focus. We discovered Pablo is allergic to gluten and dairy and radically changed his diet. We also started using Play Attention religiously. The results have been phenomenal: Pablo is now, at age 11, on a lower...

Caroline

I purchased Play attention last May 2014 as of now February 7, 2015 based on data, my daughter have used this for about 56 hours.

My daughter was 7 years old at the time we purchased Play Attention. Last year my daughter’s teacher contacted me about her behavior in school (attached is the letter from the teacher as to their observation of her behavior in school).

Why Play Attention? Since I really do not have the luxury of time to bring her to an occupational therapist on a regular basis, which is what the behavioral doctor suggested, I searched the net for a possible home therapy that I can administer to my daughter.

How I did my home therapy?  We work with Play attention every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There are 6 games on our regular therapy sessions. During therapy I give her 10 minute breaks after 3 games. We allow her to redeem her points as long as she reaches the...

Play Attention has been instrumental in reducing my ADD

I purchased Play Attention back in 2007 after doing some extensive research online for possible things, that could help with my focusing problems at work and elsewhere. Like many adults with ADD, I wasn’t officially diagnosed until I was in my late 40’s.  As a teflon fabrication specialist for my company I needed something to keep me focused on the task at hand to improve my efficiency and speed, as many of the products I built were time sensitive.

Part of my decision to purchase Play Attention is the lifetime technical, and educational support they give as part of the package. It’s a good thing too, since being a single adult with ADD, I’ve started and stopped playing the games several times over the years since my purchase. I’d often try to get back into using the games, because I did improve my focus from the small amount of time I spent...

Ramya is very attentive in class and exceeded grade expectations!

I felt amazed the first time when I heard from Ramya's teacher that she was doing great. I could see the happiness and confidence in Ramya, which made me happy for her.

Ramya always had problem concentrating on a task and staying focused for a considerable amount of time. I initially dismissed them thinking that it's just a phase and will go away eventually. But as months went by it got worse. Ramya started having trouble with finishing her homework assignments on time. Even once she finished them after a long time, there would be several mistakes and incomplete problems. I had to remind Ramya to focus on the task several times, as she would be playing with her pencil or wandering off to do something else in-between. She was unable to sit and finish her meals in one place without out being reminded to sit still and eat.

Ramya's grades started becoming low. The teacher told me that...
