When a child has a lack of available attention resources, a tendency to avoid tasks that require mental effort often arises, such as doing homework, preparing for exams, and making up for study materials missed in class. The difficulty is accompanied by a frustration so great, it often leads to a complete loss of motivation for anything study related.
“During the course of the treatment, her interest in studying renewed and her motivation soared.”
How did we achieve results?
The attention function assessment showed difficulties in sustaining a stable level of attention.
The treatment included 24 sessions, in which we utilized computerized cognitive training to improve sustained attention, and analyzed day-to-day instances that occurred in school, with friends, classmates and at home.
We developed together an awareness for feelings of frustration, lack of interest and avoidance, and learned how to identify where do these feelings stem from, and developed and practiced strategies to help function better in school and in social circumstances.
