“It only took one session for me to decide that we need this system at home!”

IMG 8903 225x300We started using the Play Attention suite of games for our seven year old son, Eli during the spring of his kindergarten year. Eli was born with Down syndrome. He struggles with global developmental delays and especially struggles with poor impulse control as well as hyperactivity. In addition, Eli is a very restless sleeper. I have longed for him to sleep more deeply knowing that it would give his impulsive brain a restful break. We have used different supplements throughout the years to calm him. Eli also sleeps under a weighted blanket. While I’m certain none of our attempts have been harmful, nothing seems to show long-term benefit. As a mother on a mission, I have researched therapies, supplements, dietary changes, and calming techniques for years. When I discovered neurofeedback, I knew I had to try it for Eli. We used a system with a local psychotherapist and realized very...

“The more she played Play Attention the more I saw improvement in her work”

Daughter 838986 960 720I started working with Jane in August of 2013, she was my very first client after purchasing the Play Attention system and starting my company. She was a bright 8 year old who was falling behind in second grade and had been diagnosed with ADHD. She frequently got in trouble for being off task, not staying in her seat, and talking out of turn. She also had a very hard time with reading comprehension. During Jane’s first few sessions of Play Attention her scores were in the high 30’s and 40’s for attention. Playing each game for 5 minutes seemed like torture for her and she was anxious to move on to the next one almost immediately. We also did academic tutoring together and the more she played Play Attention the more I saw improvement in her work.

“If you are considering Play Attention, do not have any doubt.”

Robert 150x150Our son’s attention issues were only evident through his lack of focus, lack of motivation, and lack of perseverance on a task. It wasn’t until second grade that our suspicion of him having at least borderline ADHD was confirmed when his very attuned teacher began giving us very pointed feedback on his lack of focus, difficulty with attention, lack of reading stamina. It’s been about five months now that he is consistently using Play Attention, and I notice a change in his focus and staying on task in school, play, and sports. Also, now his reading level is above grade.

At home too, he did not have any favorite game/activity and would not engage in any independent playing. Only tablets would engage him independently, but we would restrict them, so there was no solid source of recreation for him. He would read some books, but was not engaged in reading. He also seemed to lack interest...

“Our son finally had a stellar focus at practice! Wow!”

My son was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 5. My husband and I had known our son was a wiggle worm and just always knew he couldn’t focus, but everyone would tell us that little boys were just active.

Later that year, I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD and it helped answer many questions about much of my life and career and many unanswered questions. We both went on medication after some time, but I was always seeking an alternative. I was seeking a way that my son could focus, be more socially adept as well as more coordinated in sports and physical activities.

We heard about Play Attention and that it could help my son to “focus” but as I looked more and more into the system, it answered many of the other concerns I had for my son. I started the program with little hope of seeing any immediate results.

Within a month, I was getting comments from his fencing coach who told me that he...

“I can think and communicate more clearly now.”

I met Ruth in June of 2016. Her daughter, Susan, had asked if I could help her 85 year old mother who had been Alzheimersdiagnosed with late stage Alzheimer’s. My first thought after meeting Ruth was, “This is definitely going to be a challenge.” The problems we faced were daunting; Ruth couldn’t communicate intelligently. She repeated things over and over. She had obsessive-compulsive behaviors, was verbally abusive to Susan, had severe Sun Downing, displayed socially unacceptable behaviors, and had total disregard for her appearance. Ruth had been an elementary school teacher, but she could no longer read, write, or do even basic math. She apparently had very little memory, attention, or comprehension left.

My program for Ruth was intensive at first. We worked five days a week for two hours a day. The protocol I used included physical exercises, basic education training, and Play Attention to...

“Play Attention has made a positive impact on both my professional and private life.”

I would like to share how Play Attention has made a positive impact on both my professional and private life. I amVinV a 55 year old digital marketer in a large software corporation, who is also an amateur classical pianist in private life. Play attention has already played an active role at home and work, improving areas where I had struggled previously throughout my life.

I was born with Tourette Syndrome and have also had to manage panic attacks, performance anxiety, poor reading comprehension and attention issues to name just a few. I’ve tried many different forms of treatment over the years for some or all of these conditions. Some have helped, most have not. Medications were certainly not the answer.
I was introduced to Play Attention through my bio-feedback psychologist, who specializes in brain technologies and treatments, and I was thoroughly intrigued by the data he showed me on...
