Radio Interview: Overcoming Concentration Problems

Low concentration and attention levels are a common problem among children. Many kids find it difficult to concentrate or focus on a particular issue for too long. Loss of concentration could pose a serious problem to your child, especially in the classroom.

Susan du Plessis, Director of Educational Programmes at Edublox gives advice on how learners can overcome concentration problems in their studies and also talks about the three kinds of attention problems experienced by learners. If the questions below concern you, listen to the interview that was broadcast on 18 May 2015 on Radio Riverside:
