Name:​​ Increasing Attention​​ 

SKU:​​ IATGOTST

Solution Plan:  ​​​​ 

Attention is the ability to obtain and sustain appropriate attention to a task. This can be influenced by motivation, self-esteem, sensory integration, practice, language difficulties and​​ other​​ existing diagnosis.

Thinking games​​ – You can train and strengthen an individual’s​​ ability to concentrate and focus by playing concentration games that require thinking, planning and the use of memory.​​ 

  • Crossword puzzles

  • Jigsaw puzzles

  • Card games (Uno, Memory)

  • Simon Says​​ 

  • Beading​​ 

Sequencing​​ – The link between sequencing and concentration is strong.

  • Following recipes

  • Setting the table​​ 

  • Putting things in alphabetical​​ 

  • Sequencing everyday functions as brushing teeth, doing laundry

 

Strategies:​​ 

  • Divide bigger tasks into smaller tasks

  • Understand the individual’s method of learning (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)

  • Set short time goals for better concentration

  • Set a time limit for the completion of a goal. If it is studying, then state that a certain number of pages need to be done within twenty minutes.

  • Set up reward systems.​​ 

  • Use energy effectively, always begin​​ on the​​ harder​​ activities during high energy time.​​ As energy levels go down, you can always switch to a lighter activity.

  • Deep breathing and imagery. Combining​​ simple relaxation techniques such as deep breathing with positive visual imagery helps the brain to improve or learn new skills.
