About The ifocus System
The ifocus System is a Scientifically Designed and Tested Attention Training Program for children ages six to 12 to help them reach their full learning and neurological potential in the classroom and at home. The ifocus System was created by Michael Apstein and John Able, who wanted to help children achieve their full potential.
Unlike any other system available to parents, The ifocus System is a different approach to improving children´s attention, memory and focus. It centers around activities kids already love and draws from science, technology, nutrition, and exercise to create a fun and interactive way for children to improve their focus and attention. At the core of The ifocus System is Jungle Rangers, an interactive computer game that turns learning into a game. Researched and developed by a University Research and Application Pediatric Neuropsychologist, Jungle Rangers addresses brain executive functioning through cognitive training.
The ifocus System is the fun and affordable scientific way to help children learn how to filter, focus, absorb and remember. It helps children clear distractions, improve memory, absorb more information, and develop higher levels of focus and attention. Visit http://www.FocusEducation.com for more information.
