Boost your Child’s Attention & Focus
“Help! My child has trouble paying attention!” This is the most common concern we encounter at BrainFit Studio. When their child is inattentive, parents often blame it on lack of motivation or poor attention span. However, this may not always be the case.
A child may be inattentive due to many reasons. For example, a bright child may not be a natural listener. Just like some people are born without excellent running stamina, some children may not be naturally strong listeners. They may need to focus really hard to follow multi-step instructions. This gets them mentally fatigued or they may simply “switch-off” when listening.
Other children may be inattentive because they take more time to process information. Just like some of us are not quick with ball games, some children may not be quick enough in thinking. Without good thinking speed, information is easily missed and children may be more careless and inattentive.
As we celebrate a new year, our children will be expected to tackle a heavier school load. It is a great time to boost their brain fitness and to ensure they have all the brain power and mental speed needed to succeed in the new school year.
Attend this seminar to learn about:
1) Why some children focus easily while others struggle to pay attention
2) Understanding your child’s unique brain to help him/her develop stronger
3) 8 research-based strategies to improve attention in your child
At BrainFit Studio, we adopt a holistic and personalised approach to our brain fitness training programmes. These cater to the 5 vital brain-pillars, namely: Sensory-Motor, Visual, Auditory, Focus-Memory and Social-Emotional (EQ) development. For our baby and junior classes especially, these are brought about through multi-faceted, fun and engaging activities.
Currently with 26 centres in 5 countries, BrainFit Studio has been specialising in building cognitive and intelligence foundations in young children and students since 2001. Cognitive skills like focus, memory and mental speed function like the “engine” that drives our learning, thinking and problem-solving processes. They have a deep impact on our children’s academic achievement and can also be specifically strengthened.
