Sharpen Your Brain and Recall Information Faster
Failing to Stay Focussed?
Attention allows us to “tune out” information and sounds that are not relevant at the moment and instead focus our energy on the most critical information. We often need to be able to divide our attention between multiple sources of information or tasks and have the mental capacity and ability to do so.
Attention difficulties occur in children or adults who cannot concentrate for sufficiently long enough to complete specific tasks, even if it requires little intellectual effort. Maturing adults often accepts declining memory and attention as part of the aging process, when it doesn’t need to be a ‘fait accompli’. It is a key component in Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD and ADHD), Autism (ASD), whilst it may co-exist with other leaning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, Hyperlexia, Visual and Auditory processing disorders.
But for some people, certain diseases, medications and/or treatments can hamper memory and attention, as well as recall, thinking or reasoning capabilities, e.g.: suffering a stroke, after a concussion, Dementia and Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's or chemotherapy for cancer.
Signs of Thinking, Memory And Attention Problems
ATTENTION, CONCENTRATION AND MEMORY
- inability to think clearly or mental fog
- difficulty focusing or paying attention
- trouble concentrating for long enough
- easily distracted
THINKING TASKS LIKE PLANNING AND PROBLEM SOLVING
- a decline in thinking skills, difficulty making decisions or thinking things through
- struggling to multi-task, working inefficiently or losing interest in tasks
- struggling with planning or organising tasks or thoughts
- difficulty in following a series of instructions
- taking longer to learn or understand new information
- having difficulty understanding new things
WORD FINDING OR RECALL PROBLEMS
- a word might be 'on the tip of your tongue' but you can't quite recall it
- difficulty remembering things like names, dates, words or phone numbers
Train Your Brain and Become as Bright as a Button
Did you know? Attention can be trained!
We use the element of surprise to capture attention. It is proven that the brain is more attentive when it is unexpectedly surprised or challenged by unpredictable change.The more the brain is surprised, the more we pay attention.
The Tomatis® Method uses a unique Electronic Gating® system to create sound contrasts, which constantly and naturally surprises the brain, triggering the mechanisms of attention allowing an improvement in focus.The Tomatis® Method can have a very positive effect on selective attention, in addition to its general action of cerebral stimulation (known as cortical arousal).
Through repetitive, yet random stimulation, the Tomatis® Method teaches the brain to develop automatic change detection mechanisms. This is a high cognitive skill that enables the brain to select the relevant information and reject the unnecessary bits. The Tomatis® Method helps to put the brain in ‘attention mode’ and is an effective complementary approach to support children and adults.
