Cognitive Improvement After a Stroke

I would like to share our experiences after my husband, Johan, completed 80 Play Attention sessions. 

Four years ago, my husband, Johan, suffered a stroke which affected his left arm and leg function as well as his speech. Two years after the stroke, we were in talks with a representative Couplefrom Play Attention who suggested we enroll him for sessions.

By this time, Johan had almost completely withdrawn from society and didn’t have much motivation left.  We decided to give Play Attention a try. After the first 40 sessions, we already saw great improvement! He was almost back to his old self!

After 80 sessions, Johan is now able to take part in conversations.  He has again taken an interest in what is going on around him.  He assists me in decision making and makes suggestions when the situation requires it.  He even helps with small tasks around the house...

My son went from homework & focus troubles to A honor roll

IMG 6826Our journey with Play Attention began in the summer of 2018 when I was searching for a solution for my son.  Because of a blood infection at birth, he suffered some physical setbacks and some mental ones which seemed to be unexplainable, even by experts.  We knew that his memory was not working correctly, but no one seemed to know how to fix it as test results were too varied. 

I discovered Play Attention while watching many webinars on executive function and memory skills, and then contacted my boss.  I work at a small, private, Christian school and we were looking to start up a Resource Room for our students with special learning needs.  She gave me permission to buy Play Attention, and Bryan was my “guinea pig.”  

He’d come to school during the summer hours and I’d watch him do the activities.  At first, he could barely make it through the...

No more homework meltdowns.

All of our clients are assigned a Personal Executive Function Coach.  This is one dad's reply to his Personal EF Coach who was following up to see how his daughter was progressing: Doing Homework

Hello Mike,

It’s interesting that I just took this picture on Monday with thoughts of sending it to you.

As I say, we can’t always be sure what makes changes happen that seem dramatic, but you can’t ignore things either.  This is a picture of our daughter in the early morning, eating breakfast, and working on her homework that we didn't have time to do the night before.

At the beginning of this school year, every time I broached the subject each day, I experienced her meltdown at just the word 'homework.'  For her doing this completely on her own really brought a tear to my eye.  She still has a long way to go, but I am now reading 'Delivered from Distraction' and it...

Sophia's Success Story.

5912Our 11 yr old daughter started using Play Attention 6 months ago. She has been diagnosed with a Non-Verbal Learning Disability. She has trouble staying focused. We have spent thousands on tutors trying to keep her up with her peers.

I heard about Play Attention from a friend who talked about the fact that it is changing how people with ADD/ADHD learn by using biofeedback. I was curious and looked into it. The online info session was very helpful. I was desperate to find something to help my child with her learning struggles. I was also intrigued that my husband and I could both use the program to help our ADD issues. I talked to my parents and said to them that this could be something I will regret I didn’t find out about earlier.

We decided better late than never. Sophia has done well with the program. Most to the time, I don’t have to nag her to do Play Attention. She likes the...

Winning and Achieving!

MotocrossMy son, Elijah, has been using the Play Attention programme now for around 5 months, and we have definitely seen an improvement in his concentration, behaviour and coping skills.

Elijah is currently in 3rd grade and has the same teacher now that he had in kindergarten. The teacher commented on how he is much more focused and less distracting to other children in class compared to when he was in Kindergarten. I did not tell her about the Play Attention programme until she commented on a considerable improvement she had noticed in the previous 2 weeks whilst I was talking to her. I then mentioned the programme and we concluded that the changes she had noticed in the past 2 weeks were due to Play Attention.

Elijah has issues with dealing with disappointment and frustration when things don’t go as he wants. I feel that the programme is helping him to overcome these issues over time...

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...
