How we help

Why is it when you have questions about ADHD that you feel like you're in a huge warehouse superstore and can't find anyone to talk to specifically about your needs? Or the only answer you receive seems very limited and not for you.

We understand there's no single answer and no one-size-fits-all approach. So, Play Attention provides the most comprehensive packages, solutions, support systems, and technology available. Play Attention is unique because it provides full service, full support, and the world’s #1 Neurocognitive program for training Executive Functions.

Play Attention is a full-service system customizable for your specific needs. When we look at ADHD, no one knows what causes ADHD, however, we know it's located in the brain. So it's essential that we use the use the most advanced technology available to help that person develop the Executive Functions that are necessary to reach one's full potential. But technology by itself is not enough. The mind also grows with exercise, coaching/counseling, good nutrition, mindfulness, behavior shaping, and parent training. These are all components of the Play Attention system.
