Do attention skills impact reading? To read anything, you need to attend to it and the better you can focus, the easier it is to read longer passages. That is certainly the experience of Jack, one of our early pilot users.
Jack liked reading the encyclopedia because it provided lots of information in a short paragraph format. Plus, he really struggled reading anything longer. After Jack trained his attention skills with the Attention Arcade, he was able to read the entire Harry Potter series over the summer.
Even after Jack was done training with the Attention Arcade, the attention skills he developed continued to benefit him. That is really exciting for us to hear at BrainLeap!
Training attention skills can have a lifelong impact on reading and many other life skills. You can learn about the Attention Arcade here.
