Build core attention skills with cognitive training
Tali Train targets networks in your child’s brain to improve attention.
Benefits of Attention Training for children
Tali Train is a 5 week cognitive training program for children, proven to build attention skills. Reported benefits from research trials and feedback include:
Improved educational performance
Stronger peer relationships
Higher self-esteem and self-regard
Elevated family cohesiveness
Greater emotional regulation
Improved concentration and selection
Improving attentional skills in children can have amazing short and long term benefits not only for the child but also for people around them.
Like any other training program, brain training takes hard work. Tali Train was designed to turn work into play. Kids love support and structure.
Studies show that parental engagement has an impact on treatment or training outcomes. When you’re sitting next to your little one for 20 minutes, you’re being consistent with your message, ‘this is important’. If they see you valuing this time, so will they.
Tali Train is designed to be used by both neurotypical and neurodiverse children. No two kids are the same so you may need different structures in place to create improvements.
Tali Training: What To Expect
Tali Train is an intensive cognitive training program that requires about 20 minutes a day five days a week. Like any intensive training the participant, your child, may experience boredom or fatigue due to the repetitive nature of training. We tend to see the following trends throughout the program:
Kids engage with new the program. Parents learn what works.
Kids begin to fatigue and may experience boredom. Parent’s support increases.
Kids unlock a new theme at the end of session 10 and find renewed engagement. Parents increase encouragement.
Kids again show signs of fatigue and boredom. Parents provide incentives.
Kids may lose interest. Parents further increase encouragement.
Kids want to continue playing Tali Train. Parents use other techniques to build on Tali Train at home.
Training For Success
A family-centred approach to early intervention is proven to increase the likelihood of success. Therefore, we recommend the following actions to improve engagement:
Prepare your family for Tali
Educate your child’s teacher on Tali
Explain “Why Tali Train?” to your child
Create a schedule for ‘Tali Time’
Sit with your child during training
Ask questions in the parent community
Cognitive training program results are enhanced by using learnings from training in real life. Practice what your child has learnt at home or in school. Repetition will reinforce the neural pathways and help them relate daily activities to exercises in Tali Train.
Measuring Improvement From Attention Training
Tali Train is clinically proven to boost aspects of attention and reduce inattentive/hyperactive behaviour in children. Children who show improved attention go through a strict training regime. As each child is different, results may vary. Improvements are measured in the following ways:
Improvement in pre/post training questionnaire.
Compliance* with the Tali Train program.
Progress on the Tali Train program.
Performance on the Tali Train program.
Gains in everyday life (ie. social and academic skills).
*Compliance is defined as playing, fully, the recommended 25 sessions over a 5 week period.
