The Underestimated Importance Of Attention
Attention difficulties are not only found in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), they are also found in typically developing children. Many people take attention for granted. As a parent, it’s vital that you understand the importance of attention in your child’s development.
Learn about attention
Children with attention problems struggle to focus their mind on a task, to listen, to absorb information or to control impulsive behaviours and emotional outbursts.
This can impact other aspects of their lives – at school, home, in social situations and, eventually academic achievement and employment.
Selection allows a child to focus on a task by filtering out distractions. Ignoring what doesn’t matter is as important as noticing what does.
Think of a child reading a book while others in the house are listening to music, watching tv or having conversations close by.
The focus boosting game helps teach your child to focus on the task at hand for a longer period of time.
When a child masters focus, he or she can maintain attention on a task until completion.
Attention control is when a child chooses what to attend to, and what to ignore, to achieve a goal. This skill also includes dividing attention between two or more tasks.
Imagine your child talking about their school work and how they plan to tackle the exercises.
The inhibition strengthening game teaches children the skills to avoid acting impulsively.
If a child lacks inhibition, they tend to act impulsively and struggle to control thoughts and behaviour.
