“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...

My daughter ​Layla started facing problems in reading in grade one.​ ​She was doing poorly at school​, so ​​I took her to various specialists​. ​I took Layla 150x150her to an occupational therapist who said she ​did not have good eye coordination​. Later​ I took her to an educational therapist who said she need​ed​ more attention from her dad,​ (my husband​), who​ travels extensively​ because of his work​​. I​ also​ took her to a visiting optometrist from Denmark who advised on a weird protocol.​ ​

“Frederic’s progress with the play attention system has been beyond anything we could have expected.”

Freddy Picture For PlayAttention 150x150Frederic was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome in 2012 at the age of 8 years old. His existing school refused to continue with his education because they had no facilities to deal with a child on the autistic spectrum. Consequently he spent two years at home whilst we desperately searched for a solution. In September 2014, Frederic was rescolarised in a private school with a classroom helper.

His school assessment at the start of December 2015 stated “unable to evaluate – due to Frederic’s inability to convey if he has actually learned anything!” Not very promising for a 11 year old boy after 18 months of hard work by his teacher and classroom helper.

However, on the 27 December 2015, Frederic started his very first session with the Play Attention system and everything has changed.

Frederic’s progress with the play attention system has been beyond anything we could have...

A difference in just 3 months!

AndrewOur son has always been advanced for his age. Potty trained before he was 2, reading books before he was 3 and the list could go on and on. He is creative, perceptive, original, works best by himself, must finish the task at hand, he is sensitive and generous. It was not until 3rd grade that some of these wonderful traits also became a hardship.

At times anxiety would take over his school days. Play Attention’s Mental Math games have been the best for his test taking at school. Yes, he has known his math facts since kindergarten so this is not a challenge for him. Or is it? He must focus to reveal the question and stay focused to reveal the answer. Three months ago a timed test in the morning would spin his whole day into a negative cycle. He knows the answers but only having 2 minutes to complete the task would put such a fear into his heart that he physically could not get the...

“We are very happy with the results we have seen so far and look forward to the progress our children will make playing on Play Attention.”

We have two young boys, and I was looking for something to help improve their attention and responsibility for school work. I found Play Attention while searching online. I was very excited when I found and researched their program.

JD, 14, our oldest who has Aspergers, is very smart, but has trouble focusing in school. He also is behind in auditory possessing development than others his age. His social skills need work too. Play Attention has games that cover all these areas and more. He has been cooperative in playing the games for three months now. We are seeing progress in his attention to his school work and social skills. He seems to be more aware of social issues and occurrences. My husband and I are very happy when those light bulb moments occur.

Bradley, our 11 year old, is in his first year of middle school where everything you do counts more than elementary. He did well in...

Overall I am pleased to say that he did much better than my expectation.

My name is Max, and I first played Play Attention when I was 16 years old. I am one who has to concentrate hard to study for my iGCSE [Cambridge International Examinations] and GCSE exams [General Certificate of Secondary Education]. It had not been easy, as I have to study 8 subjects. I changed from a US school system to a British system 3 years ago.

My parents wanted me to learn to focus and concentrate better, so they bought Play Attention to help me. My mum found Play Attention on the internet. I think working with Play Attention has helped, as I was easily distracted in the past. My dad was guiding me whenever I played Play Attention. When I worked on an exercise with Play Attention, I sometimes got frustrated because the object did not move according to my focus. So I have to restart the game and the second time it was usually better. I feel happier when I scored good points from...
