Play Attention is an advancement of neurofeedback, integrating biofeedback technology with behavioral shaping and cognitive training. With a licensed child and adolescent therapist guiding your child through the process to increase the efficacy of learning to sustain attention, attend discriminately, control behavioral and emotional impulses and generalize improvements to their natural environment, this is the most comprehensive evidence based approach to addressing the challenges associated with ADHD. In fact, in two randomized, controlled studies performed by Tufts University School of Medicine, the Play Attention group showed significant and lasting improvements in attention, executive functioning, and hyperactivity/impulsivity, compared with peers in the cognitive training group or control group. Play Attention produced significant changes in the students’ behaviors and educational outcomes. Additionally, a six month follow up study was performed to determine whether those outcomes were maintained; they were. Play Attention is effective with students whether they take medication for ADHD or not. With the addition of the auditory processing and social skills modules, Play Attention is an appropriate treatment approach for students with auditory processing disorder as well as high functioning autism.
