About the presentation:
In a time filled with iPhones, iPads Siri, Google, virtual reality, and other gadgets and apps, our brains struggle to keep up. Even more, our kids’ brains are being bombarded by immeasurable volumes of information from their first days of life.
Prevalence of ADHD has grown from 4.4% in 2011 to 9.5% in 2017 alone. Many believe that ADHD, which stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition associated with a lack of or “deficit” in attention. In reality, individuals with ADHD struggle because they are attempting to pay attention to everything.
And because nowadays our brains are being stimulated from numerous sources simultaneously, they are unable to efficiently filter information and allocate a required amount of attention to the required task at hand.
In this presentation, we will discuss which parts of the brain are involved in processes related to attention, concentration, focus, working memory, and executive functioning. We will also provide you with tools regarding how to help the brain to strengthen those areas, so that the allocation of the attentional resources will be more efficient and lead to better performance in school and everyday life.
