What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Attention, please! These sensory-rich activities are sensational! They will encourage kids to relate purposefully to others and participate wholeheartedly in the world around them as they focus intentionally on novel experiences and ideas."
—Carol S. Kranowitz, M.A., author of The Out-of-Sync Child

"Barbara Sher's new book Attention Games is just the sort of fresh contribution we need right now in a culture gone mad with labeling kids as 'ADHD.' Her simple games and activities are wonderful for helping kids of all ages focus their attention while learning new things, thinking in new ways, and exploring the world around them."
—Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., author of The Myth of the A.D.D. Child

I ordered this for my daughter who works with people with behavioral problems. She was thrilled with all the learning activities in the book that she could use to teach specific daily living skills.
