Concentration is no longer a difficult task for Joel

“To witness the big difference this programme has made in this young boy’s life makes me proud to practice what I do, and help children realise their potential!” – Sandra Roberts, Registered Counsellor

Joel started the Play Attention programme with me a few months before he turned six years old. He had been struggling to listen, follow instructions, complete tasks, concentrate in the classroom and had behaviour issues. His teacher and parents were finding it challenging working with him, whether it was assisting him with his homework, classwork or even completing everyday tasks.

Since beginning the Play Attention programme, Joel is now able to identify those troublesome behaviours that were causing him to become distracted. He...

Watching her success, I recalled how empowering it was to be able to offer Play Attention as a tangible solution.

Athletic, creative, dynamic, charming; yet discouraged, unfocused and crest-fallen – she came into my office 4 years earlier, fearful she wouldn’t be able to obtain the 2.0 GPA needed to try out for team sports.

My son Cade was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD at age 5.

When his troubles continued in kindergarten, I decided to take him to his pediatrician for a consultation. He asked what seemed like two hundred questions, and finally suggested that we have Cade tested for an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The only facility in our area that does that...

Andy finished 5th grade on the Distinguished Honor Roll!

My involvement with Play Attention began when my stepson Andy started having difficulties in elementary school.  The school was concerned because Andy’s teachers were having trouble managing his behavior well enough to ensure that he and his peers were still able to successfully learn the material.  As such, it was not a shock to us when our presence was requested at the school for a meeting to discuss our child’s education.

What was a shock was the fact that the entire focus of the...
