Attention Span Assist Program for ADHD Kids


What is the Attention Span Assist Program (ASAP)?


We had shared on our website what causes the short attention span and how to help ADHD kids to stay focus and improve concentration. Hope they are informative to most of you.

You could also make use of this quick screening tools below to check whether the child demonstrates inattentive and hyperactive tendencies.


Quick Screen for Inattentive & Hyperactive Tendencies


We had developed an in-house program called ASAP (Attention Span Assist Program) which addresses the attention span needs targeting ADHD child.


Neeuro Cogo App and Senzeband


The ASAP program utilises Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology and features the Cogo* (previously known as CogoLand) attention training program and the Neeuro SenzeBand.

It is a Brain Training game targeting ADHD kids which is noninvasive and certified safe to use. The solution was developed at A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), as a result of a collaboration between IMH and Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore.

In the latest clinical trial that involved 172 ADHD children, the results showed that children who received 8 weeks of intervention showed more significant improvement in their inattentive symptoms than those who did not receive an intervention.



*Cogo is a digital attention training program for ages 6-12, using neurofeedback with a non-invasive Brain-Computer-Interface (BCI) game. We are the authorized reseller of Neeuro Cogo Solutions.


How It Works


There is a Pre-assessment or Demo session where you can sign up with your child to know more about the program and how it can help the child.

Here’s a nutshell of the sequence of activities after signing up for the ASAP program.


  • Introduction – Pre-Assessment, Program objectives, Training Schedule, Calibration
  • Ready For Training in 24 game sessions in 3 levels – Basic, Intermediate & Advanced
  • Assessment, Review, and Discussion of the need for a Home Program



Frequently Asked Questions


Cogo has been shown to improve attention function for children aged 6 – 12 years old. If you find that your child displays inattentive tendencies such as a lack of focus or can’t concentrate, this programme will be suitable for your child.

Try QuickScreen to get an indication if your child is demonstrating inattentive and/or hyperactive tendencies.

Cogo* is a personalized training program. Before starting the training, the child goes through a ‘Calibration Phase’. This is done under the supervision of a clinician. During Calibration, the child wears Neeuro’s SenzeBand, so his/her EEG data is collected.

That data is then used to build the child’s personalized attention state model which is used to track how well the child is focusing during the training sessions.

Yes, Cogo was developed out of a decade’s worth of clinical trials which showed significant improvements in children with attention difficulties.

Aside from exhibiting better results in their assessments, there were improvements in their brain activity scans as well. Check out the published papers.

There are 24 sessions in the Cogo programme that your child will need to complete.

It is recommended that your child commits to 2 – 3 times a week over a 2 – 3 months’ timeframe to ensure the best results as supported by our clinical trials.  

Cogo can be used on Android or iOS tablets with the following specifications:

  • Bluetooth 5
  • Minimum of 4GB RAM
  • Apple iOS 13.0 and above or Android OS 11

Your child may or may not experience slight headaches and dizziness. Rest assured that these are very minimal cases reported when a child is going through attention training.

Most of the time, participants feel better and can carry on after taking a short break.

We recommend parents to play an active role during their child’s attention training programme.

Parents will be responsible for scheduling their child’s training sessions, ensuring there is a conducive environment for the training to take place and giving appropriate encouragement and motivation for session completion.

For every session completed, you will be able to view your child’s brain and game score on the post-session statistics and tracker on the app. Additionally, you will be able to gauge your child’s performance for that completed session by an attention graph and the distance travelled by the avatar.

Upon completing the 6th, 12th, 18th and 24th session, you will receive an email with a report of how your child is progressing so far in the training programme.

There is no memorization in Cogo* as the objective of the game is to get the child to focus and sustain their focus. During the game sessions, the attention level of the child is tracked.

We monitor the average attention level for each session. Over the whole training course, the child becomes better at their attention control, and we can observe the average attention by session to be trending up.

In the latest clinical trial using Cogo*, the intervention program was done with children in several phases: 8 weeks of intensive training followed by maintenance training (3 sessions per month) over the course of 12 weeks.

The researchers saw that Brain-Computer Interface (BCI)-based attention training program can lessen ADHD symptoms and maintenance training may sustain these improvements.
