A lot of kids struggle with math in school. Once you get past the basics, the concepts can feel foreign and disconnected from everyday life. Weak attention skills can make it even harder.

If you are trying to understand the challenges around attention, you will likely come across three words regularly: attention, focus, and gaze. What are the differences between them? How are they the same?

One of the great joys I have is talking with parents whose children are using the Attention Arcade. Recently, I spoke with JoAnn, whose son has been using the Attention Arcade very diligently (20+ minutes nearly everyday) for three weeks.

Attention and School Outcomes

My child can’t stay focused in class.  

The past year was difficult.  We started the year doing pretty well and then things started to slip.  Teachers called to say that assignments were missing, not once or twice but regularly.  We tried punishments, no trip to the river if you don’t turn in your homework.  There were tears and tantrums and in the end.  Nothing short of constant supervision made an impact.
