Play Attention is a PC based program that uses special games that involve brain power.
When concentration occurs certain brainwaves are produced that indicate focus and attention is happening. Sensors located inside the Play Attention helmet read those brainwaves and use them to develop better concentration and focus.
Based on the same technology NASA uses to train their astronauts, Play Attention builds skills that are critical for success. The skills that are learned improve short and long term memory, concentration, being able to filter out distractions, and the ability to listen attentively.
Student's progress is monitored automatically and hard copy reports are produced periodically and made available for the parent and coach review. The student is then able to see a report of their progress which allows them to make improvements.
After working with Play Attention parents report improvement in doing homework independently, staying focused in the classroom, taking responsibility, and acting more appropriately with peers and adults.
Play Attention requires 40 to 60 hours of training with a coach and parent involvement.
