Practical Ideas to improve inattention in children

Inattention has been defined as the ‘lack of attention or the ‘failure to carefully think about, listen to, or watch someone or something’ {Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary}.  In other words, it refers to the inability of an individual to attend to an item or object, person, sound etc. for a required duration of time.

Attention span in children is a developmental skill. Therefore, a gain in the skill is seen with age, till it becomes adult-like. It is natural for younger children to lose interest and attention rather rapidly when compared to adults with typical attention. And therefore it is prudent to understand the typical development of the skill – before it is seen as an ‘issue’ or ‘deviance’.

Seeking the correct path is crucial. One must pay attention to the subtle signs of inattention in young children, to ensure they can learn better and perform well – developmentally or academically!
