New Success Story! Play Attention & Jordan's Superpower!

"Your child is mentally retarded!"
 
"He is smart but lacks focus, he is all over the place."
 
"We would love to help but can’t."
 
"I am not sure that I am treating the right thing, I think something is happening neurologically, he needs further testing before we can continue therapy!"
 
Jordan C 2
"I don’t think he belongs at this school, you need to find somewhere else for him."
 
 
These are just a few of the comments that I have had to endure as a parent for a son who is loving, intelligent and different. My son Jordan will soon be 12 years old. It is believed that he is on the Autism spectrum (tested), he has a tic disorder and ADHD as his extra super-power. So, what is a parent to do! After his ADHD diagnosis, we thought that once we could get the focus under control, there would be improvements in other areas, and we tried a number of...

"I really can't believe what it just did for my son!!!"

When trying to write down the success story of my 12-year-old son Sam, I really didn't know where to start!  Our road was so bumpy... from horrible temper tantrums to an almost nil communication stage, then onto speech therapy for 3 years, after which at around 7 years of age he started some verbal communication, though that was not so appropriate and not really a two-way thing.  Then there was the school phase, My Son Successwhere his impulsivity used to push him to say things which he didn't know the meaning himself.  These events of impulsiveness caused an unstoppable sequence of punishments at school, from sitting in the office during break almost every other day, to being banned from playing sports.

Every other day he used to come home from school with increasingly broken self-esteem.  People were not ready to understand the impulsive nature of his brain.  Instead, they...

Cognitive Improvement After a Stroke

I would like to share our experiences after my husband, Johan, completed 80 Play Attention sessions. 

Four years ago, my husband, Johan, suffered a stroke which affected his left arm and leg function as well as his speech. Two years after the stroke, we were in talks with a representative Couplefrom Play Attention who suggested we enroll him for sessions.

By this time, Johan had almost completely withdrawn from society and didn’t have much motivation left.  We decided to give Play Attention a try. After the first 40 sessions, we already saw great improvement! He was almost back to his old self!

After 80 sessions, Johan is now able to take part in conversations.  He has again taken an interest in what is going on around him.  He assists me in decision making and makes suggestions when the situation requires it.  He even helps with small tasks around the house...

My son went from homework & focus troubles to A honor roll

IMG 6826Our journey with Play Attention began in the summer of 2018 when I was searching for a solution for my son.  Because of a blood infection at birth, he suffered some physical setbacks and some mental ones which seemed to be unexplainable, even by experts.  We knew that his memory was not working correctly, but no one seemed to know how to fix it as test results were too varied. 

I discovered Play Attention while watching many webinars on executive function and memory skills, and then contacted my boss.  I work at a small, private, Christian school and we were looking to start up a Resource Room for our students with special learning needs.  She gave me permission to buy Play Attention, and Bryan was my “guinea pig.”  

He’d come to school during the summer hours and I’d watch him do the activities.  At first, he could barely make it through the...

No more homework meltdowns.

All of our clients are assigned a Personal Executive Function Coach.  This is one dad's reply to his Personal EF Coach who was following up to see how his daughter was progressing: Doing Homework

Hello Mike,

It’s interesting that I just took this picture on Monday with thoughts of sending it to you.

As I say, we can’t always be sure what makes changes happen that seem dramatic, but you can’t ignore things either.  This is a picture of our daughter in the early morning, eating breakfast, and working on her homework that we didn't have time to do the night before.

At the beginning of this school year, every time I broached the subject each day, I experienced her meltdown at just the word 'homework.'  For her doing this completely on her own really brought a tear to my eye.  She still has a long way to go, but I am now reading 'Delivered from Distraction' and it...

Sophia's Success Story.

5912Our 11 yr old daughter started using Play Attention 6 months ago. She has been diagnosed with a Non-Verbal Learning Disability. She has trouble staying focused. We have spent thousands on tutors trying to keep her up with her peers.

I heard about Play Attention from a friend who talked about the fact that it is changing how people with ADD/ADHD learn by using biofeedback. I was curious and looked into it. The online info session was very helpful. I was desperate to find something to help my child with her learning struggles. I was also intrigued that my husband and I could both use the program to help our ADD issues. I talked to my parents and said to them that this could be something I will regret I didn’t find out about earlier.

We decided better late than never. Sophia has done well with the program. Most to the time, I don’t have to nag her to do Play Attention. She likes the...
