Online attention training programs
Do you or your child have trouble sustaining focused attention?
Could it be ADD or ADHD?
Are you keen to try attention training alternatives to ADHD medication?
What is involved in paying attention?
Attention involves processing specific information while tuning out other information in the environment.
People can have limits both in terms of capacity and duration.
What’s happening in the brain
There are brain chemicals called neurotransmitters that make it easier to pay attention to new information and to hold onto newly learned information.
Medications for ADD and ADHD increase the levels of these neurotransmitters in varying ways.
Can I improve an attention deficit without medication?
Yes! It turns out that even the things that teachers do in a classroom can naturally increase these neurotransmitters. For example, when a teacher congratulates a student for good work, dopamine is naturally increased.

But what if we went one step further by engaging students in novel, motivating games, with content that requires longer and longer periods of sustained focused attention, and which provides positive feedback for correct answers?
Well, it turns out this is the recipe for success that’s required to naturally increase attentional neurotransmitters to improve a person’s ability to pay attention and for longer periods.
How to improve attention?
To improve attention or help with attention deficit disorder, we need to target the cause of attention problems with a three pronged approach which includes skill building strategies.
Traditionally, attention deficit treatment recommendations have focused on medication to increase the brain chemicals that are necessary for sustaining focused attention.
The trouble with only medicating for attentional difficulties is that the student will forever be reliant on the medication in order to pay attention.
However, many health professionals now agree that attention training is an important part of intervention for attention difficulties.
