Attention and agitation issues are increasing at alarming rates among our children and youth. Such restlessness can pose challenges for learning and behaviour at home and school. Adults often feel overwhelmed and confused about how to make headway with a child who cannot seem to focus or sit still. In trying to alleviate symptoms we can unknowingly employ measures that are serving to exacerbate their attention problem. There is much that can be done to help bring a child to rest by understanding the two common roots of attention problems.
