THE KEY TO HELPING ALL CHILDREN DEVELOP HEALTHY ATTENTION SPANS

"Attention, please! These sensory-rich activities are sensational! They will encourage kids to relate purposefully to others and participate wholeheartedly in the world around them as they focus intentionally on novel experiences and ideas."

—Carol S. Kranowitz, M.A., author of The Out-of-Sync Child

"Barbara Sher's new book Attention Games is just the sort of fresh contribution we need right now in a culture gone mad with labeling kids as 'ADHD.' Her simple games and activities are wonderful for helping kids of all ages focus their attention while learning new things, thinking in new ways, and exploring the world around them."

—Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., author of The Myth of the A.D.D. Child

If you want to focus children's attention, you first have to capture their interest. Attention Games is filled with interesting and child-tested activities that can help children of all ages become better at focusing and paying attention. By sharing the upbeat, joyful activities in Attention Games, you can enhance your child's intelligence, boost his confidence, increase his ability to concentrate on one thing for long periods, and show that you care. Developed by Barbara Sher—parent, teacher, play therapy specialist and pediatric occupational therapist—these activities are specially designed to encourage kids to expand their powers of attention in ways that will help them throughout their lives.

So gather the children in your life and get ready to have fun as you open their minds and hearts to new ways of learning while increasing their powers of focused attention.
