About Tali Health
Tali Health Pty Ltd is based in Melbourne, Australia and is made up of a team of neuroscientists, software engineers, game developers and all-round talented individuals. Our vision is to be a leader in the assessment and treatment of childhood attention difficulties. We aim to assist children in reaching their full potential by providing engaging training software clinically proven to improve core cognitive performance.
Attention is one of the first cognitive skills to develop and as such plays an important role in guiding all future learning. When a child learns to pay attention, it enables them to concentrate on a task or conversation for an extended period of time, to filter out distracting information and to prevent impulse responding. Without these core attention skills children struggle to develop more complex skills such as memory, language, reading and writing.
Who Is Tali Train For?
Since early intervention is the key to better outcomes, Tali Health is developing programs for children aged 3 to 8. The programs may be suitable for children 8+ depending on the child’s developmental age.
Most other programs have been developed to begin at age 6. This makes Tali a unique provider of early years’ intervention when it is most needed. Tali is particularly beneficial for children who are at risk of attention difficulties due to an underlying developmental disorder such as autism spectrum disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Creating Programs To Diagnose & Improve Cognitive Performance
Introducing Tali Train
The program represents the culmination of over 25 years of research in developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience. It incorporates engaging touchscreen exercises to train children’s 4 core attentional skills.
Using a special algorithm, each exercise adapts in difficulty in real time to the gameplay of the child to ensure that they are constantly challenged. The program has been proven, through scientifically validated clinical trials, to improve attention by strengthening underlying attentional processes.
The Tali Technology was developed in collaboration with Monash University, and based on over 20 years of research from leading developmental and cognitive neuroscientists. The Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences which is embedded within Monash’s world leading Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences continues to work closely with Tali Health to develop new and exciting technology. The Institute is the largest of its kind in Australia and the biggest grouping of cognitive and clinical neuroscientists in the Asia-Pacific region. The Institute aims to improve the understanding of the human brain through innovative research approaches and actively supports the use of that knowledge within ‘real world’ settings.
