paying attention in school

Attention disorders such as ADHD or simply an inability to focus and pay attention is school is a common complaint from students, teachers and parents. Some kids stare out the window, others are the class clown and some get deeply frustrated, angry and unhappy. As parents, it’s easy to think that if they just focussed or tried harder, things would fall into place. Turns out it isn’t that simple.

School-related anxiety is common in students especially those with learning disabilities (and even some without!). We talked to Eaton Arrowsmith (EA) on how they (and we as parents can) help kids get calm and focused so they can develop learn and achieve their full potential.
