The program is on an individual basis. You will progress at your own speed. The program is for 40-60 plus hours. You must spend at least one hour/week on the program: usually 30 minutes twice/week, however, an adult can do 45 minutes twice/week or 1.5 hours. You can start whenever there is a time slot available. Adults can start with a Boot Camp. There is only one Boot Camp starting in July per year for children. All Boot Camps must start at the beginning i.e. at zero (0) hours.
You will see a remarkable change in your ability to focus. Your family and friends will notice it before you do. It takes twelve years to get a basic education plus a few more years for a promise of a better paying job. About one year in this program will give you the opportunity to reach your ability based on your intelligence and aptitude. If you have a child or are an adult, who wish to improve, this could be your ticket toward your goal.
Test results: We have been testing people that have completed the program. Everyone, who returned after one year has increased their attentions since completion. Only one person has returned after two years, she was a little lower than when she completed the program, but still higher than when she started as well as still showing remarkable attention.

The ADHD Report (Dr. Russell Barkley, Editor) September 2018 issue states "Neurofeedback is an operant conditioning procedure that, by trial and error, teaches participants to volitionally self-regulate specific regions or networks through real-time audio or visual feedback of their brain activitation, which can be represented on a PC. For children, this can be gamified in an attractive way.
Neurofeedback is approved by the American Society of Pediatrics with their highest rating:
Level 1 evidenced based treatment for ADHD.
Steiner et al. research in 2014 concluded:
Neurofeedback made greater improvements in ADHD symptoms compared to
both Control and Cognitive Attention Training conditions.
Thus Neurofeedback is a promising training treatment for children with ADHD.
Working Memory Training is for anyone, who wants to sharpen their focus:
adults as well as children 8 years and up and youth.
Sessions are on an individual basis. Your training starts anytime there is a slot available.
Please, note we now have two units, so we can have two people take the sessions at the same time
(providing they are at the same level of the program).
This is a neurofeedback program
Neurofeedback is a technique in which we train the brain to help improve its ability to regulate all bodily functions and
to take care of itself. Neurofeedback measures brain waves to produce a signal that can be used as feedback to teach
self-regulation of brain function. Neurofeedback is commonly provided using video or sound, with positive feedback
for desired brain activity. (Source Wikipedia; Referenced August 1, 2015)
Improve your life on a permanent basis.
Please, note there are no cures for ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Autism and Dementia, however, this will help.
Working Memory Training helps with:
Working Memory Training can increase focus and concentration.
And it does more. Much more. It develops core skills like ignoring distractions, increasing memory, increasing organization, finishing tasks, and following instructions.
Hyperactivity and impulsivity are often problems at both school and home. Your child can learn to control these behaviors through Working Memory Training. Focus more, fidget less. Once these behaviors are controlled, it’s easier for your child to make friends and succeed at school.
If you’re tired of seeing your child struggle through school, Working Memory Training is right for you. Working Memory Training has helped thousands of school children. Our program has been used by the US public school system since 1996. It can improve skills that are necessary to survive and thrive in the classroom. Developed by an educator to help his ADHD students. This program is now the world leader in solving attention.
Improved Social Interaction
Working Memory Training can help improve relationships between siblings or with other children at school. Working Memory Training can also improve interactions between parents and adolescents with ADHD. Your child does not have to be an outcast or feel different. Working Memory Training can help your child make friends and learn the skills necessary to keep them.

I took the Working Memory Program from Excalibur ADHD Association and found it very beneficial. In particular I have noticed a marked improvement in my ability to concentrate on some of the lengthy emails I must read in my work. Prior to regerstering for this program I spoke to my family doctor, who while not familiar with the Working Memory Program did endorse the benefits of mind exercises. Judy
