How does Play Attention work?

Scientific research has demonstrated that the brain is adaptable and capable of learning throughout life. This is termed neuroplasticity. Play Attention allows the user to view the attentive state in real-time. Over time, Play Attention students can learn to increase focus and concentration. The interactive exercises challenge the student to achieve new levels of focus and cognitive processing. Gradually, the student can retain the skills necessary to be successful in the classroom, work, and home.Back to top

Play Attention vs. regular video games

Parents frequently find that their child can play commercial video games for hours without being distracted. This is because the graphics inherent in these games are incredibly over-stimulating. Any child can pay attention to a three ring circus. However, it is impossible for a classroom teacher, even in her best lesson, to be as stimulating. The learning process, whether it occurs in the classroom, home, work, or on the playground is seldom as highly stimulating as commercial video games. Play Attention does not require hand-eye coordination like regular video games. Play Attention allows the user to control its low-level stimulation video exercises by the attentive state alone! The student's brain waves actually control the games. Its interactive software in the games provides a tool to help learn how to control levels of attention. Skill mastery is obtained through the use of the mind on level appropriate stimuli rather than the use of a joystick.Back to top

How old do you have to be in order to use Play Attention?

UL+T recommends use from age 6 to adult. Generally, it is not appropriate for children under 6.Back to top

Is Play Attention easy to install and use?

Play Attention can be installed and configured using the easy-to-follow instructions provided in our interactive training manual that includes video and audio segments. Installation can be completed in about 15 minutes.Back to top

Can my child use Play Attention by him/herself?

He/she may, however, it is recommended that supervision be provided initially for maximum benefits.Back to top

How often and how long do I have to use Play Attention?

It is recommended that students use Play Attention twice a week for 30-40 minute sessions. You should begin to see good results after about a month to a month and a half of sessions. However, studies have shown that in order to get permanent change you have to use this technology for at least 40 hours.Back to top

What happens if I stop training early after only 15 hours?

You will experience improvement after only 15 hours, but for permanent skill acquisition, a minimum of 40 hours is recommended.Back to top

How long does it take to train as a Play Attention coach?

It usually takes about 3 hours to learn how to use the software and how to be an effective coach. However, we do recommend that your or your staff members work with each other for about a week so that they are very familiar with the system before beginning work with a student. By utilizing our distance learning program, you can work with one of our professional support agents via telephone or email to insure proper use and the success of your program. A multi-media User's Manual containing text, audio, and full motion video is included in the Play Attention package.Back to top

Do the learned behaviors transfer back into the classroom/home?

Yes, transfer may include greater time on task, improved self-esteem, increased attention, better academic performance, improved social interactions, decreased impulsive behaviors, improved focus & concentration, and higher reading comprehension. Play Attention includes a management plan to help insure transfer. It is the coach's assistance and parental/teacher reinforcement that insure transfer. See the instructional video and coaching guide for specific information.Back to top

What types of people use Play Attention?

It is recommended that you use Play Attention with children or adults who have difficulty with focus and attention and who have an IQ above 65.Back to top

Is there anyone else I can contact who has used this program in his or her schools?

We can help you contact schools that use the program. Call 212-222-5665.Back to top

Is it biofeedback?

Play Attention is an integrated educational attention training system employing a combination of brainwave monitoring, cognitive skills exercises, and behavior shaping techniques. This combined educational protocol of Play Attention is patented and exclusive to Play Attention. The protocols and methodology are trademarked as "Edufeedback" which best describes what we do. Feedback is a common practice of all great teachers, and the feedback we use includes all levels of learning. The only similarity Play Attention has with traditional "neuro" and "bio" feedback techniques is that Play Attention offers the user an opportunity to view and learn from their attentive state in real-time. However, those other feedback protocols have been unable to insure transfer and generalization of the skills acquired during training because they do not incorporate cognitive skill building tools or integrated behavioral shaping. Play Attention specializes in the building and transfer of the cognitive skills and behaviors needed to be successful in the classroom, at work, and at home. It is the basis for the patents issued.Back to top

Does it work off of eye movement?

No. It works off brain waves. There are sensors within the helmet, which monitor data indicative of focus and cognitive processing. These sensors allow the user to control the movement of the screen characters by attention alone.Back to top

What studies have been done?

This technology has been used and studied for about 25 years. There have been numerous studies conducted within that time. The United States Air Force and NASA both use this technology to train their pilots to attend under various conditions. we are quite proud of the results.Back to top

Can I use the helmet for more than one person?

You can use the same helmet for more than one person. The same care should be used when sharing the headset as you would use sharing hats.Back to top

Is it durable?

Yes. Play Attention is manufactured with regard to the highest industry standards. It is, however, an electronic device and must be treated as you would treat a cordless phone or CD player.Back to top

What guarantee is given?

You may use Play Attention for 30 days and return it if you are not satisfied for a refund of the purchase price. Proper use must be determined via the Play Attention data file. Improper or non-use voids the 30 day guarantee. Our limited 30 day guarantee can be viewed online.Back to top

At what point do we stop using the program?

For long-term benefits, the user should continue the program for a minimum of 40 hours. A coach may graduate a user after 40 to 60 hours of training. Although the user may demonstrate total mastery of the skills being taught, research indicates that long-term benefits occur after 40 to 60 hours of training. We suggest weaning the student off the program while monitoring progress in the classroom or workplace to insure lasting results.Back to top

What warranty is given?

We warrants that the Play Attention headset and interface unit ("Hardware")is warranted for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of original purchase. The Play Attention sotware warranty for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of the original grant of the applicable license.Back to top
