Visual Attention TherAppy

Visual Attention TherAppy is an adjustable training tool for reading, dyslexia, neglect, and other attentional deficits. Race against the clock to find all the targets amongst similar or dissimilar letters and symbols. Use two targets to increase demands on memory and focus; adjust the lines and spacing to meet each user’s skills, vision, and dexterity. A red, yellow, or flashing line can draw attention to the Left or Right for those with unilateral neglect. Test and Practice modes both offer email score reports. Use this app to target pre-reading skills, attention, memory, visual tracking, or neglect.

Visual Attention TherAppy Lite gives you a free trial, allowing access to 1 level in both Test and Practice modes for 1 or 2 targets. Try out the various attention-grabbing signals and e-mail results! Download for FREE!
