Research

Play Attention is the only neurocognitive training system to have randomized, controlled studies funded by the US Department of Education. Studies were performed at the Tufts School of Medicine, and published in: the Journal of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics, Clinical Pediatrics, and Pediatrics. Excerpts from the findings state that researchers found, “Neurofeedback  participants made more prompt and greater improvements in ADHD symptoms, which were sustained at the 6-month follow-up, than did CT participants or those in the control group. This finding suggests that neurofeedback is a promising attention training treatment for children with ADHD.”

“Children who received Play Attention (NF) showed significant improvement compared with those in the control condition on the Conners 3-P Attention, Executive Functioning and Global Index, on all BRIEF summary indices, and on BOSS motor/verbal off-task behavior. Children who received CT showed no improvement compared to the control condition. Children in the Play Attention (NF) condition showed significant improvements compared to those in the CT condition on Conners 3-P Executive Functioning, all BRIEF summary indices, SKAMP Attention, and Conners 3-T Inattention subscales … Conclusion: Play Attention (Neurofeedback) made greater improvements in ADHD symptoms compared to both the control and CT conditions.”
