TALi Health – World-first digital platform to treat clinical attention deficits in early childhood
Australian developer TALi Health offers a world-first digital platform that
identifies and treats clinical attention deficits in early childhood.
Globally, 136 million children have been diagnosed with clinical attention
deficits including ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Untreated attention deficits can have long-term effects on the individual,
their family, as well as the resources of the education, healthcare and

The TALi platform offers a world-first solution: a digital, non-invasive,
accessible and scalable first-line approach that identifies and treats
clinical attention deficits during early childhood.
Powered by over 25 years of research, the platform targets specific
attention skills by utilising a digital gamified environment with
touchscreen tablet technology. Consisting of TALi Detect
and TALi Train apps, it analyses gameplay data to precisely measure
attentional capabilities and treat specific cognitive attention deficits to
deliver clinically proven results.
The TALi Train digital cognitive attention training program has been
deployed in over 30 schools and by over 150 healthcare providers across
Australia since launching in July 2018.
TALi Detect, the digital attention assessment tool, will be launched in
Victorian primary schools in October 2019, as well as with early adopters
in the US.
