About the Program
Brain Leap Attention ArcadeTM consists of six game-based exercises that each train a different aspect of attention. Children from the age of 5 can complete the exercises using a non-invasive eye tracker (the eye tracker is placed on the computer screen), which adds to the intensity of the exercises and ensures players remain focused. The program offers a fun, non-invasive way to strengthen attention and focus (and even inhibitory control, planning, visual span, visual discrimination, etc.).
The program does not support the making of any diagnoses, but is able to accurately measure:
Covert orienting speed
Speed of response
Time and accuracy of the player’s ability to orient attention to a peripheral stimulus
36-session Basic Program (minimum 3 x 30-minutes p/w)
52-session Advanced Program (minimum 3 x 30-minutes p/w)
Without strong attention skills, it can be difficult to learn because attention is critical to self-control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility.
Children struggle with these skills because of busy environments, increased workloads, their background, genetics, ADHD, autism and for many other reasons. The good news is that attention skills can be strengthened (even in children with already good to average attention and focus skills).
Attention training can have a significant impact on a child, and even more so on children with attention challenges. Regardless of why they have attention challenges, attention strengthening exercises can make a significant difference.
