Topic: Is it REALLY That Hard to Pay Attention?
Program Guest: Brenda Lana, Pathfinders Learning
What does it feel like to NOT be able to pay attention? This series of exercises in the attention simulation offers a powerful glimpse into challenges with attention, focus, and concentration. The objective of the simulation is to offer opportunities for personal insight into the well-intentioned, but often frustrating, lives of high-potential children (and adults) facing attention challenges. Not only can this increased understanding lead to more useful guidance, but children often express sincere gratitude to parents and professionals for better understanding why they act and react the way they do when required to sustain focused attention. Understanding the emotional
challenges a child is facing will help them meet those challenges more effectively.
It’s an interactive and FUN night!
