Success Stories

From failing to college bound!

I would like to share my experiences as a program manager using Play Attention with one of the teenagers that came to my clinic.

As an ADD kid, Fatima was failing ten subjects in her senior year of high school, which was a bilingual private catholic school with small class groups.

Fatima had failed to pass Math and was having several problems coping with other subjects. Her parents asked for help, since Fatima’s last report card showed that she was underachieving in nine additional subjects and was jeopardizing her high school graduation.

Brody’s Story

[pb_row][pb_column span="span12"][pb_text]

Joyce Bowen’s son Brody always seemed to be on the go. Even as a baby, he seldom slept for more than five hours a day, and his rambunctiousness only grew as he got older. Soon, Joyce felt as if she were spending more time disciplining Brody than playing with him.

When Brody was old enough to go to school, Joyce began to receive telephone calls from his teachers. Brody was being disruptive, and he just couldn’t sit still in class. On one occasion...
