Paying attention is a critical skill for everyone. But, there are a variety of things that influence how and why a person attends or does not attend to something. This presentation will discuss the area of “attention” and what it means when working with children and adults with disabilities. Participants will learn about internal and external influences on attention such as bio behavioral states, distractions, and multitasking and how they can impact people’s lives and relationships. They will also participate in activities that test their own ability to attend.
