I have many more years of real life ahead of me.

Kathy’s Story

Kathy and her husband Larry, came to me at my clinic, Brain Fitness Center, in Parkersburg, WV, in the spring of 2011. She was 67 years old and had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two years earlier. The couple had seen several primary care physicians, searching for some type of treatment that would allow Kathy to live more effectively and productively in her daily life. She was told to accept the diagnosis, go home, and live with the disease the best way she could.

Eventually they were referred to a primary care physician who was familiar with my clinic and some of the programs I used. This doctor contacted me and asked if I thought any of the therapies I used might help, since the medical field didn’t have much to offer...

Case Study: Ruth, An Alzheimer's Client

I met Ruth in June of 2016. Her daughter, Susan, had asked if I could help her 85 year old mother who had been diagnosed 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 has more capacity to stay calm. That is awesome improvement!

When we started Play Attention, Katherine had already completed a year of vision therapy, and there were still two...

I could not be happier with the results…Dheepak’s hyperactivity has gone down tremendously!

image1 300x225My son Dheepak only started to read and write at the age of 6.5. All the doctors I took him to told us that he had developmental delay. However, after visiting an education psychologist who did a QEEG (mind mapping ) of his brain,  I discovered that he had ADHD.

As per the psychologist’s recommendation I took him to weekly neurofeedback sessions. These sessions were taxing for both me and Dheepak as it required me to travel outstation. Some sessions were simply a waste of our time and...

“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...
