What can Attention-Memory Testing tell me about my attention and working memory that my Brain Training program can’t?
Attention-Memory Testing Batteries will give you clear and comprehensive information about how your attention and working memory skills stack up to your peers on a national level. This real world comparison can help you see where you currently stand relative your same age peers, give you a baseline starting point, and allow you to measure your improvement from Brain Training over time.
While results from Brain Training games do show you how you have compared to others who are playing the same game, they do not provide standardized measurement information from external measures made up of national samples. National samples can give you real world comparison on scientifically validated test measures that possess demands consistent with work, school and real life. After all, It is the real world that is trained for. It is common knowledge that individuals with ADHD can over learn video and computer games. However, ADHD individuals do not show this same skill in the classroom or office where day to day demands are very different.

When you apply the information gained from self assessment to your training you will have more insight into selecting games and activities that allow you to consistently improve.
