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 for?
Since early intervention is the key to better outcomes, Tali is developing programs for children aged 3 to 8. The programs may also 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 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.
