What is Biolink?

BioLink uses World leading Play Attention neurofeedback technology for individuals who want to improve their attentional control. Biolink neurofeedback technology is used for individuals struggling to maintain attentional control or want to improve their attention levels.

In October 2012 the American Academy of Pediatrics report on Evidence-based Child and Adolescent Pyschosocial Interventions concluded that for the Attention and Hyperactivity behavioural problems, Neurofeedback was a “Level 1 Best Support’ intervention, the highest level of support.

Biolink scientifically measures 5 building blocks of intentional control using the South African developed FOCUS CPT test.

Biolink Centres also offers various interactive workshops to support parents and learners from Grade R to Grade 12
