Attention and Academic Issues
Select the targeted age group, then the level of intervention.
Attention and Academic Issues occur when students have trouble sitting still, focusing on tasks, finishing their work, and turning in assignments on time. Attention and academic issues can lead to falling behind academically, becoming disengaged with school, as well as externalizing (e.g., acting out to avoid school work) and internalizing problems (e.g., depression due to school failure, anxiety regarding assignments/tests).
Intervention and supports for Attention and Academic Issues focus on increasing executive functioning, on-task behavior, and planning and organizational skills.
