After Play Attention training, Max made another attempt to sit for the gifted test and, to our joy, he got the passing score!

Play attention helped my son Max (age 11) to improve his short-term memory and processing speed — the two important characteristics that kept him from from passing the gifted test. In spite of the the general opinion that short-term memory is something given and inherited, I was looking for ways to work on it. It was our goal to get Max into the gifted program at school.

My mom and dad were...

Luca’s story

Luca Spolidoro photo2 150x150Luca has always appeared to be a “bright child” but struggled to channel his intellectual capacity into everyday school tasks. This is true of many children with attention problems. They are bright but their grades don’t reflect their true potential. He found it difficult to ‘focus’ in the classroom but tried hard. So why was he struggling?

Luca is a bright student, but he became bored very quickly in environments that presented him...

Alec now participates in class, completes school assignments in a timely manner, and is very social.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to help their child in school.

Alec started the Play Attention program eight months ago, due to a recommendation from his psychologist. I read all of the reviews and did my own research on the product. I even participated in the webinar asking many questions that related to Alec and how it will work in our everyday lives.

Our first day was March 31, 2013 and we haven’t looked back. He was having a hard time attending to tasks at...
