seeking recommendations to improve focus & concentration

Postby pheurie » Fri Jul 09, 2010 8:41 am

I am looking for a program to help my son with his focus and concentration skills. Is there any that you would recommend?

Came across this Powermind Intensive by Singapore Brain Development Centre - has anyone sent their children to this and can share your feedback?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Share the same experience with you on my P5 son. We did the pre-test with SBD few years back, when my son is P1-2, cost about $50. We did not sign up the course, is too expensive and time consuming. 2 years ago, he joined Mindmax (similar to SBD but cheaper), but show no improvment and furthermore he does not like it. Later last year, he attended taiji lesson. He love it and I think it does help. As a kaisu parent like me, he is also on chinese medication to help him 'open the brain' to be more forcus.

Hope it helps.

My sister has a bad experience with Singapore Brain Development. When the kids did not improve in their focus they 'blame' the parents for not doing enough training at home. Push all the responsibility to the parents if the kids did not show any improvement. The teachers were not passionate. There was a time whereby one of main trainer 'twisted' his son's hand just because he was fidgety during lesson. Get to know some parents even pull out their children from the training program without completing the course even though they have paid a bomb (6k plus). Hope all the parents out there will think twice before signing up the program with them....
