Some students have been identified as needing support. What can I do to help?

If a student is struggling with attention, they may have problems engaging in classroom activities or in some cases become disruptive which then can have an impact on the whole class.

Once you’ve completed DETECT and received your results, you can identify which children may benefit from TALi TRAIN. With TRAIN, any child who has been identified as having higher level of inattention in the TALi Detect assessment will have the opportunity to strengthen and refine their attention skills across 25 minute daily sessions over five weeks (5 days per week).

Introducing TALi TRAIN - TALi TRAIN was developed to build and strengthen core attention skills early, to help children improve their capacity to learn and take part in life. The program targets four core attention skills.

  • Selective attention: blocking out those distractions that can interrupt a child’s focus – computers humming, lights flickering, conversation near by, other movement or activity in the classroom.
  • Focus: Concentrating when learning something new. Maintaining attention on a task over a period of time.
  • Control: Detecting conflicting information and selecting and focusing on only the relevant information.
  • Inhibition: Developing the ability to act in a less impulsive manner.

A class where children can pay attention and take part in all the activities benefits everyone, including the teacher and other students.
