Success Stories

Play Attention was one of the best, if not the best, investment for our son.

Avi was always very active and busy as a young kid. He also seemed to have trouble learning letters in preschool. When Avi switched to a new school in kindergarten, his teacher noted that Avi could benefit from some of the services provided by the school. By the time Avi was 8, we had our official ADHD diagnosis with some mild learning disabilities.

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.

I was lucky to find Play Attention and its variety of games that help kids to get focused, stay focused and ignore...
