Attention Development

Do the following situations seem familiar to you?

  • Failure to focus on lessons, unwilling to listen what is told
  • While listening what is told, being a day dreamy
  • While being already busy with something, easily affecting by external stimuli (an insignificant noise or movement) and changing the attention to different way
  • By moving the attention to different way, missing the main topic
  • Forgetting the places which you put your things and that’s why losing them
  • Missing details and making simple mistakes
  • Cannot conclude a topic and causing it to take longer than what it should be
  • Unwilling to do homework and assignments that require concentration

You see those kinds of indications on someone around you and that person (your child, student or relative etc.) has also similar attention-gathering problems. Is that correct? If it is, we have good news for you. You can overcome attention-gathering problems by doing attention exercises! So, what are those attention exercises?


Mental development occurs by forcing brain just like muscle development. Thinking actually means forcing for the brain. Of course, trying to find solutions or understand something mean the same. Therefore, we always force our brain very often in our daily life. As you guess, we can overcome diseases such as distractibility, lack of attention, and difficulty in gathering attention with mental exercises based on attention. I mean, we can make our brain do some exercises which require attention.

Solving a mathematical problem or watching a fascinating action movie can be considered as an attention exercise in daily life. The main point here is that a mathematical problem doesn’t attract your attention enough that’s why you may not focus on the problem and maybe distracted. Hence, an action movie may have a capacity to attract a great deal of your attention. So, watching an action movie might be a good attention exercise. Therefore, it is possible to use some games or toys which can be used as an attention exercise and loved by children who have problems of attention-gathering. (E.g. puzzle, toy blog etc.) In the same way, adults can play games to do attention exercises that they can deal with them without getting bored. This is exactly what the experts who insist on learning with the game want to do: "preserve attention".

If you want to be a bit more involved to the topic:


Focusing on the issue that we are interested in as the main duty without being affected by stimulating external factors; ability to paying attention to the interested subject for a long time by forcing our minds means gathering attention.

Problems related to gathering attention are observed in two ways.

  1. Attention-gathering problem in the case of hyperactivity and continuously taking new actions
  2. Attention-gathering problem in the case of being unconcerned, unwillingness and quiet and unable to focus on any subject by constantly dreaming.

While we are performing attention gathering exercises we need to think about the mental health of the child who is experiencing attention gathering problem. Those children who have difficulty in gathering attention may fail in the courses at school and in their social relationships. However negative feedback can lead to more serious problems. Attention gathering exercises should not be as a reminder of his/her problems to the child. That's why it would be very useful to list the tasks which parents and trainer might perform.

Give Your Attention, While Performing Attention Increasing Techniques!

Attention gathering problems are usually perceived as problems once the school has started, but sometimes parents may suspect that their child may have problems with attention during pre-school period and they may get a professional help. After that, children receive brain exercises with pre-school attention activities. Pre-school attention activities are followed by school term attention increasing exercises. In fact, these exercises are not only required to be performed against the disease but also in normal situations because attention exercises improve the functions of the brain related with attention.

We have mentioned about the importance of interest and willingness factors among the attention gathering techniques. In order to focus on something for a long time, it is necessary to preserve the attention. When you focus on something for a long time, your brain will be forced and performed exercises which are improving as we explained before with the example of muscle development. So, our new mission is to provide to preserve the attention.

  • Try to provide a quiet studying environment to the children who are having problems about gathering attention because they can be easily affected by external voices. (At least enabling for them to turn their homework into a attention gathering exercise)

Also, support them by mentioning about the importance of completing the task and its achievements.
