    I've just heard of this and was wondering if anyone has tried it or even heard of it? I have tried many different ways of helping my kids but I tried the meds and and stopped. My kids weren't gaining weight and one son lost weight and didn't gain it back until we stopped. I worried about side effects down the road too. One son was going through puberty and I wanted nature to take it's course and my younger son is only 11 and hasn't gone through it yet. He is my hyper one! He saw this on line and told me it sounds "hokey-pokey" and like a scam!

    Do you have a link, Oolala?

    ETA it seems to be simply www.playattention.com but it refuses to load on my computer right now.

    Got it. Well, I can see why it would catch your interest, and I have no idea if it's legit. It's a Certified Space Educational Product? Good luck tracking down the person at NASA who signed off on that one.
    I don't like that they don't give you pricing info in an upfront matter, just all the advertising hooks.
    There must be an ADD/ADHD forum somewhere that could answer this. I'd want another parent, or a group opinion that this is working before forking over what is apparently enough money that they hesitate to tell us.
    I can look online, but I don't think an answer will be easy to find.

    I found some reviews on line but they said while your brain controls it there is no conclusive evidence that it will translate to another situation. It also mentioned that there is not evidence as to when your brain is "trained" by playing so when is it over with? It cost something like $300 or $400 dollars (US) from what I remember. I was just wondering if anyone here has tried it or knows anything about it? I doubt I'll do it. My kids love video games but now with all the sports and homework and camp coming up...there is no time for it!

    We cross posted, did you see the link one up? If nothing else, an ADD/ADHD forum might be a good outlet for you. We're a pretty small fishbowl here. We've talked some about the issue, and we'd love to hear your experience, but I don't know that you'll find someone here who's tried that program..
    I'll step back and see if anyone has, but for support as a mom come here any day. icon_biggrin.gif Hugs.

    You're right! Every now and then I pop in here and all around in the forums.

    I was thinking you could use a Zaar name if you don't mind me saying so! It's easier to remember someone that way.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hey, we've been talking in a thread up there about the connection between Asperger's and celiac disease. One of our forum hosts is quite knowledgeable and follows the diet hersef - Jubes. There's also been some connection made with gluten intolerence and ADD/ADHD, so you might want to ask. There's a forum here that covers it, too.
    You can call me 7, or Ms. Numbers. My friends do.

    Hi (lucky) 7! I like that. I have a few friends with gluten allergies. We don't have it in my family though.

    They've been using Biofeedback for ADD for years. Some people swear by it. This to me looks like retail biofeedback.

    Several members of my extended family in addition to my twenty-five year old daughter have ADD.
    After her son was born she developed low thyroid and a Dr of Chinese medicine told her she was intolerant of gluten (wheat) so the whole family, including her two year old son, went off wheat.
    A year later she was tested for celiac and the test was negetive so we started eating wheat again. Within a month her son was eating pretty much nothing but wheat, was having two or three GIGANTIC tantrums a day and he ended up having a seizure.
    We are back off gluten and they are feeling MUCH better. No more seizures or big tantrums.
    My daughters thyroid is better and she has noticed a real difference in her memory (no longer a goldfish) and attention.

    They are using a gluten and dairy free diet to successfully cure late onset autism if it's started early enough.
    More dietary ties are being discovered as contributing to chronic issues all the time. For example; nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers) worsens arthritis symptoms and removing them has cured many suffers.

    If you think about it, it shouldn't have taken this long to figure out because we are what we eat.

    Living gluten free is inconvenient. But trying your kids on gluten free for a couple of weeks may be worth it because it may help and it can't hurt.
