A lot of children have self-distracting behaviours. This is especially true for children with ADHD, and managing these symptoms can be quite challenging.
Fidgeting with hands or feet
Chewing on a pencil
Being aware of every noise or movement causes them to lose focus and not be able to stay on task.
Our program has behaviour-shaping components built in.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
The key distracting behaviours are identified, and the child will get a correction on how certain behaviours affect their attention and ability to stay on task. The information is used during our coaching process to ensure the child are aware of their behaviour, the consequences and how to control that behaviour at will. Children are usually unaware of these behaviours and how they impact their attention and ability to stay on task.
When these behaviours are displayed, the program will alert the child during the brain-enabled exercises.
We then have a teachable moment to explain how these behaviours impact them in the classroom and at home.
WHY IS THIS SO POWERFUL?
It is not just you telling your child to stop with certain behaviours. Remember, they are unaware of this!
They can actually see in real-time how certain behaviours influence their attention and ability to stay on task. For the first time, they can understand the correlation between their behaviour and the consequences.
Once the child is aware of their behaviour, we guide them to modify and self-regulate these behaviours.
Sheer Genius, our AI ( Artificial Intelligence), sets behavioural goals for each exercise. This way, the child can SEE that their behaviours are controllable.
It is very empowering because a lot of time, children feel that this is outside of their control.
That is why Academic Transfer Lab is so powerful. Not only can we SEE and DIRECT behaviour, but the AI help set reachable goals to create a positive environment for success.
The transfer of skills plays a vital role in our day-to-day life.
The situation in which we learn is rarely identical to how we apply and use that learning.
Whatever skills we learn in school, we are expected to apply them in life.
For example, we learned arithmetic in the classroom and used it while shopping.
Transfer of skills learned is learning skills in one context and applying them to another, i.e. the learner can take previously acquired skills and use them effectively in a new setting.
WHAT MAKES THE PROGRAM UNIQUE
The Academic Transfer Lab exercise allows us to monitor participants' attention while working on a real-world exercise.
Academic Transfer Lab is the only tool in the world that provides feedback while the participant is doing a task like homework or reading, and this helps to transfer the training to class or work situations.
The nature of the tasks can be almost anything, from a reading assignment or a sheet of math problems for a school-aged child to replying to emails or filling out a tax return for an adult.
Academic Transfer Lab is a wonderfully effective way to make sure skills are transferring into everyday life.
We make certain that all the cognitive skills that are taught are transferred to their everyday life activities.
How great is that?
