TALI Train is a ground-breaking game-based training program for young children, designed by a team of neuroscientists at Monash University. The program represents the culmination of over 25 years of research in developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
The program has been proven, through scientifically validated clinical trials, to improve attention by strengthening underlying attentional processes. Critically, improvements were retained after treatment had stopped, suggesting that benefits are longterm, conferring a lifelong advantage.
Designed as a five-week clinical intervention, the program is accessed via an off-line, home-based tablet, making it available to users across a wider range of socio-demographic groups and geographic locations.
The program incorporates four engaging and adaptive touchscreen exercises to train children’s core attentional skills: selective attention, sustained attention, and attentional control.
Using a special algorithm, each exercise adapts in difficulty in real time to the gameplay of the child to ensure that they are constantly challenged. Key parameters can also be tailored by TALI providers to ensure that the program addresses the unique needs of each child, including those with neurodevelopmental disorders.
This product is the first of its kind to apply gaming technology to an
intervention for young children with attention deficits.
By avoiding a “one-size-fits all” approach to early intervention the TALI
Technology enables tailored treatment uniquely designed for each child.
