Ten Tips for Building Attention Skills at Home
Tuesday, April 24, 2018
Do you feel like you are constantly nagging your child to pay attention? Or do you find yourself saying "Focus!" every afternoon over homework? Are the students in your classroom distracted, lacking concentration, or tuned out? Attention activities may be just the thing to help with kids who have a lot on their mind in the classroom or at home. Distractions can come in many forms. The child who is overly sensitive to sensory input may over respond to the slightest sounds, textures, sights, scents, tastes, or motions. Children who are excessively distracted by their sensory needs will struggle to attend to simple commands. Other children are able to "keep it together" in a classroom or home setting yet their concentration is challenged. This informative workshop will provide simple yet effective strategies to help build attention skills, as well as, reasons why your child might be having difficulty maintaining attention.
