I use Play Attention with children and adults with ADHD

I use Play Attention with children and adults with ADHD. The neurofeedback training Play Attention provides enables patients to improve their attention and focus.  Patients’ improvement can be monitored with standardized tests of visual and auditory attention.

Additionally, the Play Attention games provide greater challenges as attention skills are increased. Higher level games provide more distraction to simulate every day challenges to maintaining focus. A high degree of motivation is maintained due to the intrinsic enjoyment the PA games provide.

I treat this as exercise for my mind. I'm pleased with the results.

I would be glad to share a personal story with Play Attention! 

In about four months, Play Attention has become something that has been very helpful to my work, my studies, and my personal well-being above all!

I have been and still am the kind of person who gets frustrated easily when things go wrong - something that is part of life...

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.
