ATTENTION SKILLS

A student’s ability to attend to incoming information can be observed, broken down into a variety of sub-skills, and improved through properly coordinated training. We train and strengthen the three primary types of attention: • Sustained Attention: The ability to remain focused and on task, and the amount of time we can focus. • Selective Attention: The ability to remain focused and on task while being subjected to related and unrelated sensory input (distractions). • Divided Attention: The ability to remember information while performing a mental operation and attending to two things at once (multi-tasking).
