Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if this will work for my child?
Because it’s based upon years of research, data, and experience from leading doctors and scientists in their fields of expertise. Because it’s been tested by a nationally recognized specialist in Child Psychiatry and Brain Imaging. Because it’s worked for so many children and helped so many families. All of that points to it improving the lives of children and families. ifocus™ truly provides a holistic approach to improving focus, attention, and memory in your child. And as a parent, you are free to get as involved with your child’s improvement as you like. The game provides your child with a platform for improvement in focus, attention, and memory that they can do all on their own. But the additional materials are a great way for you, the parent, to get involved in your child’s improvement through cognitive behavioral strategies, fitness programs, and nutritional guidelines—all geared toward helping your child FILTER, FOCUS, ABSORB, and REMEMBER.
How long and how often should my child be playing Jungle Rangers?
The more time your child plays the more improvement you will see. Focus Education recommends at a minimum 20 minutes three times per week, but 30 minutes five times per week is better. The aim is for your child to receive at least 12 to 20 total hours to get the benefit of game play as it relates to their focus and attention. If they want to keep going after that, great, and there is about 45 hours of gameplay in Jungle Rangers. Of course, the game is designed so they can continue to play for many more hours to have additional gains in focus and attention, win additional trophies and garner further achievements. Although parts of the game can be a struggle, it is not always how well you do in each of the tasks but the amount of time, focus and attention your child has given to the tasks. You can track the hours of game play in the dashboard.
Will I need to do this with my child?
As a parent, you can choose to get as involved as you would like, but even with minimal involvement, you will see positive results in your child’s ability to focus, pay attention, and remember.
What if I don’t see the results I want?
In case you do not see the results you want, we offer a deep and honest 6-month Parent-To-Parent Promise: Within 6 months you will (1) actually notice improvements in your child’s behavior day-to-day and in their performance at school and (2) be able to measure their progress on our Jungle Rangers Dashboard—or your money-back. We absolutely guarantee this product.
Will my child's improvements from ifocus™/Jungle Rangers last or will they fade?
Research shows that once neuro pathways have been opened or strengthened they do not recede unless there is either a disease or until the onset of issues later with aging.
What if the game is too easy for my child? Or what if the game is too difficult?
The game technology has been designed to automatically adjust itself to the level of difficulty at which the player can succeed and then slowly challenges the player to higher levels of focus and attention. To avoid frustration, the game will come back down to a lower level when necessary. Initially, it may take the game “brain” 10 to 30 minutes to learn the player and adjust to the appropriate level.
How many players can play Jungle Rangers at the same time?
Only one person can play Jungle Rangers at a time, but you can log up to 5 player profiles in the game, and keep their data in the dashboard in order to track each player’s individual improvements. In order to add another player beyond 5, you will have to delete a player profile to add another.
Does the game play from the CD or do I have to install anything?
The CD provided is the game installation CD. Once you have installed the components onto your computer, the game will be played from your computer, giving you optimal performance. However, the CD is required to be in the CD drive as the key to unlocking the ability to play the game, every time your child plays.
