The impact of inattention in kids with autism
Some of the earliest features of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are related to attention difficulties. Children with Autism often have trouble directing attention to others, monitoring gaze, keeping eye contact and controlling attention away from a task or interest. This can have a negative impact on a child’s educational engagement, social development and family relationships.

Build Strong Minds For Kids With Autism
Parents are often focussed on improving social skills in kids with ASD. The stronger a child’s attention, the better their social skills, and ability to maintain and grow peer relationships. Strong minds mean happier kids.
