Super 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.
Our children are expected to tackle heavier school load as they grow. It is never too late to boost their brain fitness and to ensure they have all the brain power and mental speed needed to succeed during the academic years.
If you are a parent of school-going child between the ages of 5 and 16, this is the seminar just for you. Cheryl, our brain fitness expert, will provide you the answers to some of the common concerns faced by parents:
- Why do some students focus easily but others struggle to pay attention?
- How can I help my child to be less fidgety when studying?
- How does brain fitness training help my child to develop stronger focus?
- What practical strategies can be applied to help my child have stronger focus?
- How does technology (the use of computers, iPads, etc) affect my child’s ability to focus?

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.
