Attention & listening – Schools

Attention and listening skills are the basis of all language development and learning. A student must be able to listen and attend to what is happening around him/her in order to understand it, despite varying levels of distraction.

Good attention is the ability to focus on something specific for a certain length of time. As children progress through education, it becomes increasingly important for them to focus their own attention for sustained periods of time.
