4yo- 6yo (N2- K2) I Can Focus- with the Alert Program 2020 Dates
What does a neurosurgeon in the operation room and a lawyer in the court have in common? They can deeply focus to deliver high level performance by screening out irrelevant information. Being able to focus and pay attention helps us get things done and become capable in any area. Learning takes place when we focus our attention on thinking about information.
To be a high achiever, it is crucial to pay attention and persevere through difficulty. Equip your child to channel energy in positive productive ways.
“I Can Focus” is a workshop that helps children improve focus and self-control from young. Preschoolers (4yo-6yo) are eager explorers, moving from one exciting thing to another. Develop your child’s impulse control and concentration through “Stop and Think” skills and expressive play. There will be alerting as well as calming activities so that your toddler can identify these two alertness states from young.
Each participant will be given a tool box of calming and alerting strategies and an individually customized “Sensory Diet” to help them reach the best level of focus when needed.
For this age group, children are not expected to self-regulate, thus, participation of their caregivers, teachers and/or parents is recommended so that they can help the children regulate their energy.
Workshop materials and activities are developed in-house by our highly qualified trainers who have more than 10 years of working experience with children.
