Struggles With Focus

Hey, I’m Kelly and I help parents, educators, and caregivers better understand the brain, body, and behavior.

Yes, ADHD can contribute to focusing struggles, but there could be other issues behind those challenges as well (no this graphic doesn’t cover them all). Understanding and awareness of the multiple factors that can contribute to struggles with focus are important helping children (and adults) improve focus. Physical needs, psychological needs, sensory processing, and emotional issues can all contribute to struggles with focus.

For a quick at home or classroom tip try using some deep breathing, movement, or mindfulness techniques after a transition. All of these help bring awareness to the brain and body and direct attention where it is needed. Using these techniques daily helps to build strong connections between the brain and the body.
