    I have been on this site for years, and have gathered amazing ideas and stragegies for helping my son. We have made huge progress with diet and nutritional supplements, and I thank everyone who has shared those approaches, because overall he is doing VERY well.
    Our area of concern remains to be school. Medicated or natural, this seems to be a common area of problems for many of us.
    Through this forum, I discovered brain training ideas. I know my son will benefit from this, but finding the right one is important.
    I wanted to ask for opinions on the subject, and appreciate any and all comments in favor of, or cautions. They can be expensive.
    Recently had an eval done, at a Brain Training facility, and for 8 months, 4 times a week, it would be about $11,000.00! Needless to say, that is FAR from our financial means.
    I have run across a few sites:

    Braintraining101.com
    Brainbuilder.com
    Brainskills.com
    Lumosity.com
    Attengo.com
    goofybrains.com

    any feedback?
