Why Aren’t You Paying Attention: Influences and Outcomes - Session 3 of 3
Date: May 10, 2022
Time: 4:00-6:00 Mountain / 3:00-5:00 Pacific
Presented by: Robin Greenfield, Ph.D.

This series focuses on the topic of “attention.” How it is defined, its’ limitations, and factors that impact it. All individuals have external & internal influences on their attention. Children with more significant disabilities are not always able to manage those influences which, in turn, impacts their learning. Recognizing a child’s availability for learning is critical to designing & implementing a meaningful ed. program.

Session 1: Foundations, Facts, and Fun
o This session will provide foundational information on attention including facts about the attention system of the brain and discuss how those facts apply to children with more significant disabilities. Participants will learn about different kinds of attention and have an opportunity to look at their own attention.

Session 2: "How Do You Know I am Paying Attention?"
o Session 2 will provide information on the kinds of things that influence attention. Participants will see a variety of videos that demonstrate children with significant disabilities in instructional settings and discuss the strategies they can use to understand how, when, and why a child is paying attention.

Session 3: Distractions, Interruptions, and the Myth of Multi-tasking
o The final session will demonstrate additional factors that influence attention including distractions, interruptions, and multi-tasking. Participants will learn how & why distractions and interruptions can impact learning for children with significant disabilities & discuss how changes in a classroom or other environments can make a difference in a child’s attention and learning.
