HAS ANY RESEARCH BEEN CONDUCTED WITH FOCUS POCUS?
A published research study, conducted at the University of Wollongong (Johnstone et al., 2010), showed behavioral improvements for children with ADHD after 20-25 training sessions (or about 10-12 hours) of using the cognitive exercises in Focus Pocus. Inattentive, impulsive and hyperactive behaviors were reduced after training.
Similar results have been seen in a larger published research study (Johnstone et al, 2012) incorporating reward for high levels of attention during training for children with ADHD, with behavioral improvements also seen for children who did not have ADHD. Parents reported that their children were better able to follow through on instructions, reading more and without prompting, and behaving more appropriately in the classroom and at home.
