How can TALi DETECT help parents?

TALi DETECT is a clinically validated, game-based cognitive assessment of three important attention domains in children 3-7 years of age:

  • Magnifying-Glass-Icon@2x
    Selective attention - the ability to select specific information.

    Selective Attention

    The ability to select specific information from multiple sensory inputs. This is the most studied attentional network.

  • Sustained attention - the ability to increase and maintain vigilance
    Sustained attention - the ability to increase and maintain vigilance

    Sustained Attention

    The ability to increase and maintain vigilance and response-readiness in preparation for a forthcoming stimulus.

  • Executive attention - the ability to monitor and resolve conflict
    Executive attention - the ability to monitor and resolve conflict

    Executive Attention

    The ability to monitor and resolve conflict between computations in different neural areas, regulate thoughts and feelings, and overcome habitual actions.

Fun, engaging & easy to administer.

The TALi DETECT assessment can be completed in one session of approximately 20 to 30 minutes. A child completes seven fun and engaging game-based exercises, with their performance forming the basis of their attention report.

Unique TALi Attention Profile for every child.

The DETECT report provides a performance-based measure of a child’s skills in the three areas of attention: Selective, Sustained and Executive. As part of the report, each child will receive their own unique TALi Attention Profile.

Comprehensive Attention Report.

After completing TALi DETECT, you’ll receive a detailed report for each child, outlining their performance relative to the average performance of a large sample of neurotypical children (normative sample). The report identifies the overall attentional development of the child, as well as the child’s areas of strengths and weaknesses.

TALi Detailed attention profiles

DETECT examines the strengths and weaknesses of a child’s attention profile. If your child’s attention profile is Prompt or Monitor, your child may benefit in TALi TRAIN or other interventions.

  • Attention cognitive flexibility

    Lower attention skills than average

  • Sustained attention skills

    Slightly lower attention skills than average

  • Selective attention skills

    Performing at or above the expected level
