HOW CAN I HELP

Attention and Listening

Does your child have a short attention span? Your child, for example, might only play with one game or toy for a few seconds or minutes before moving on to something else. Is your child able to attend or focus on someone or something, maintain that focus for a period of time, and transfer attention from one person, task, or item to another? Attention skills are important for children to listen and understand when people talk.

Without adequate attention skills, a child will have a more difficult time learning in his/her early years and also in school. These skills are also necessary to help children develop social interactions with peers and adults, understand vocabulary used, and follow instructions.

Make sure your child has had a hearing test and also seek Speech Therapy support.
