maybe you can try thinkersbox. my colleague went for their complimentary test last week..and i think she was saying that her boy also cannot pay attention well. i've also read some of the articles they share..seems interesting..

Any idea on the charges??? Some of these training may cost $2k+ and that is only some of the sessions/ therapy to help the child to improve.

i checked with my colleague. she say they have different payment schemes...monthly about $200, but also can pay by term or full
but the training is personalised according to her son's learning based on some test they do before the programme

ThinkersBox

Postby Gwen » Thu Jun 24, 2010 3:44 pm

Has anybody tried ThinkersBox and has any comments to share? What they have listed in their website seems to be exactly what my DD needs help on.....so am contemplating if I should explore.

Hi Gwen,

I have just gone for the detailed tests and signed my gal up at the same time. I didn't pay up for the full 10 months because am not sure if I will end up with the whole course. But what I can say is that dd seems to love the class! She is rarely so positive but this time, she actually asked to sign up and is keen to go back. When I asked her what she did, she said she learnt to solve problems. Hmm...........seems quite good.

What tests did she go for and who certified it? Can u elaborate what that means? How is her academic performance.

Dolphinsiah, dont be too worried about this now. I think u should concentrate on taking care of your hubby first as stated in yoru other posts.

You can try brainfitstudio.com at Novena. They used to be called brain revolution. I am not sure if they have something that is appropriate for your child.

My ex-colleague once worked there and he says that they really have a good program going for younger children. They are very ex though..
