“Thomas’ teachers have no concerns, and he loves middle school!”

I would like to share our story. I was first concerned about my son, Thomas, who seemed to have a lot ​of difficulty following more than one 1122162018 300x225instruction at a time, forgetting things all the time, having trouble sitting still and exhibiting other distracting behaviors in the classroom. I was especially worried about how things would go for him when he entered middle school with multiple teachers who may not have the ability or patience to deal with Thomas’ issues.

I already knew about a program in Oregon called “Help Eliminate Learning Problems”, but I was concerned about the need for visits to the school regularly and the amount of time it would take away from our normal routines. We tried parenting strategies such as Total Transformation and Love and Logic, but it was hard implementing all of the components. We tried a neurofeedback program that mapped Thomas’ brain and saw areas of...

“I can see a huge difference in Eretz’s self-esteem and ability to control his body. I am so proud of how far he has come!”

I started working with Eretz about 3 months ago. When I first met him, he had a difficult time staying in his chair Home Run 300x199and refraining from touching every part of my computer. Through the weeks we developed a very good relationship and I learned that almost every student in his class was getting a “home run” daily. A home run was a sign of a good day. When I met Eretz in May, he had only received one all year.

I learned that he was always in trouble with the teacher and always seemed to be singled out. After only 6 sessions Eretz started bringing home home runs! I could see the excitement in his eyes, and his mom was so proud of him. Before I knew it, he was getting home runs regularly. His mother asked him how he was able to earn so many home runs. He told her “I decided I was going to be good, I listened, helped, and raised my hand when I needed to talk”.

“Play Attention will allow me to know how to stay mentally active throughout my ‘golden’ years.”

Sam 300x214When I first found out about PLAY ATTENTION, I just turned 61 years old & had spent the previous 15 years (since being diagnosed in 2001) going thru books, counselors, EEG-feedback, coaching, & online programs / “therapy games” to address my issues enough to provide hopefulness that I’d be able to get a handle enough to operate in the “real world”, as a house-husband / cook /pet owner[2 dogs]/ & guitarist in community ensembles. After only limited & temporary benefits from those resources, I decided to try the PLAY ATTENTION program, especially after learning about the technological improvements over the previous neurofeedback sensors. It was gratifying to find out that the learning paradigms involved in the PA games, were effective in acquiring the coping skills that I needed to make my different “hats” much more easily worn, after more than 4 decades of undiagnosed...

“Luke 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.”

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.Luke 2 150x150 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...

“Emmanuel’s mother states she has not had a call or email from the teacher this year, which is amazing.”

EmmanuelEmm1 137x150 In August 2015, Emmanuel joined our Play Attention student group. He was starting 4th grade and diagnosed with ADHD. According to his Mom, Emmanuel was in trouble everyday in 3rd grade as he struggled with impulse control of outburst in the classroom. In addition to his impulsive behavior, he was experiencing trouble with reading and math.

The benefit of Play Attention for Emmanuel was evident almost immediately with the stopping of outbursts in the classroom in less than one month after starting Play Attention. His mother states she has not had a call or email from the teacher this year, which is amazing. Emmanuel says he has only had one warning and he is very happy to be in control of his volcano mouth.

Three months after starting Play Attention Emmanuel’s reading skills began to improve and he was able to achieve a reading score. His continued use of Play Attention has...
