Play Attention for Peak Performance Training!

AnjaAs the mom of a single child, I am very guilty of doing everything for my child, usually to my own demise.

We hated doing homework! Instead of giving my child the chance to do it on her own and in her own way, I did it for her.

I heard about the Study Methods course presented by the Play Attention Biolink Center, but I thought it is only for children struggling to learn; Alexja was a 90%+ student so she didn’t need it. How wrong was I!

In 2016, when Alexja was in Grade 5, I decided to enroll for the Study Methods course presented by Marlize from Biolink. It was a huge revelation for me and for my child.

There are so many amazing ways with which they can study and save time while doing their homework. So much more play time for my child in the afternoons.

After this course I distanced myself from homework and study time and allowed my child to do her summaries on her own. The...

How Play Attention helped Landon after suffering a concussion

With our son Landon, his journey started out a little more difficult than most. In addition to having ADHD, when he was 3 1/2 years old he fell down a flight of stairs and suffered a concussion. Due to his age, he had to stay in the hospital overnight for observation. The fall down the stairs had temporarily left Landon unable to walk, regress to bed-wetting and he forgot his colors. Thankfully when Landon's brain activity stabilized, he could walk again unassisted and go to the bathroom alone without accidents. Unfortunately, he had to relearn all of his colors. 

As time passed,  my husband and I noticed behavioral changes in Landon. He wasn't as happy as he used to be, he struggled with reading people's facial expressions, he was aggravated easily and he didn't listen to instructions or follow through without being confrontational. Upon taking him to the doctor, he was...

Play Attention of my foundational tools.

Dr Pitkin 3I've used Play Attention for years in my business. I have a couple programs that I've used for a long time, but Play Attention is the longest and most consistent tool I have used since I've started my business. Play Attention addresses attention and the cognitive skills.

Since I started using Play Attention with my students, I have had students, under the care of their healthcare provider, that were able to either not increase their medication, stay on a low dose, or not be on medication at all.  One of my success stories is about a client, who was on medication.  He began  middle school. Many middle school and high school students don't want to take their medicine anymore. His parents decided that they wanted to try an alternative to his medication, and so he started training here at my business. His mom gave me a report that he's getting A's B's and C's without his...

Evan's Testimony

​​We began Play Attention with Evan in March of 2014.  Evan was 11 years old at the time and struggling with his ability to focus in school and extracurricular activities.  Evan’s grades were suffering, but more importantly, his inability to focus on everyday tasks was chipping away at his confidence as well.

What makes Evan’s success so great is how his ability to focus improved without the help of ADD medication.  As parents, we were concerned with the side effects of ADD medication because Evan has always been a picky eater and a common side effect of ADD medication is a loss of appetite.

Evan’s psychologist introduced us to biofeedback and Evan enjoyed the games he played at his weekly sessions, so we did some research online about “biofeedback and ADD” and came across Play Attention.

Not only is Play Attention a great biofeedback tool, their staff is amazing as...

Rachel's testimony

The Play Attention team is committed to your success.  We have many support systems in place to insure this.  Two important aspects of this include customizing everyone's Play Attention plan to meet your specific needs and unlimited support and guidance from your executive function coach.  I recently have had the pleasure to work one of our very special Play Attention families with these two areas.

This is their story...

Rachel is an extremely bright 9 year old.  Her family recently decided to start a Play Attention program at home.  Not only would Rachel be enrolled in the program, but her mom would also be using Play Attention to improve her own executive function.  Both Rachel and Mom took our FOCUS assessment first, so that we could further pinpoint different strengths and weaknesses.  We also discussed an appropriate training schedule for...

A Mother's testimony

My child's journey with Play Attention started in her Grade-3 year. She struggled with math to such an extent that I feared that her math grades might cause her to fail her academic year. My daughter had to stay in class during many breaks since she could not write the work off the black-board fast enough. Her teacher also informed me that my daughter cried every day in school feeling completely overwhelmed by her inability to keep up with the speed of learning presented in her classroom. Furthermore, another child teased my daughter that she was the, "Dumbest child in the entire school." It was a heartbreaking situation for me as a mother.

I enrolled my daughter in extra math classes in the second term of her Grade 3-year. The lady who presented the extra math classes expressed her concern about my daughter's ability to concentrate and recommended that we take her to a center called...
