Breakthrough Therapists in Davie providing “Play Attention!”
Play attention, which was inspired by NASA, is a learning system designed to improve attention, behavior, and cognitive function in children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Unlike cognitive training, Play Attention has been shown to greatly increase cognitive skills by using powerful advancements in neurofeedback technology.
Play attention was formed on the idea that the greater the attention, the greater the learning. When you are actively engaged in an activity and paying full attention, your brain releases a signal. While using Play Attention, users wear an armband that monitors that signal and then transmits wirelessly to the computer. With this technology, cognitive games are activated when users apply their full attention to presented tasks. Users can then move their game characters by solely using their mind and attention. If attention is lost, the game will stop until they are able to fully apply themselves again. The technology used in the Play Attention program strengthens the mind so you control your mind, it doesn’t control you.
Controlled clinical tests combined with independent studies done at Breakthrough Pediatric Speech, OT, and ADHD Therapy Center of Broward, provided powerful results, including, in part:
When comparing cognitive training with Play Attention, a study completed by Tufts University School of Medicine found that overall Play attention produced significant improvements (i.e., improved focus, behavior, and academics) in participants with ADHD, while cognitive training did not. In addition, many participants who received cognitive therapy required medication increases, while those who took part in the Play Attention program did not. Furthermore, when researchers tested participants six months post treatment; play attention participants maintained their significant gains.
Give your child (children) the gift of a sharper mind, better behavior, increased attention span, controllable impulses, and all of the wonderful circumstances that flow from a child being his or her best!
