Attention Training

ALI Train is a ground-breaking evidence based training program proven to improve attention and support learning in childhood. Designed by a team of neuroscientists at Monash University, the program is the result of over 30 years of research in developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience.

Designed as a five-week clinical intervention, TALI TrainTM is accessed via a home-based tablet, making it available to users across a wider range of socio-demographic groups and geographic locations. The program incorporates engaging touchscreen exercises to train children’s core attention skills. Using a special algorithm, each exercise automatically adapts in difficulty to ensure that children are constantly challenged.

Who is TALI TrainTM suitable for?

TALI TrainTM is suitable for any child between the age of 3-8 years who is experiencing attention difficulties. For instance, struggling to maintain focus in the classroom, having problems following instructions, and being forgetful or

distractible. TALI TrainTM is particularly beneficial for children who experience attention difficulties as a result of developmental disability, such as autism spectrum disorder.
