Do you want your patients to learn how to count auditory stimuli? "Counting" is the new sustained attention game for kids.
"Counting" consists in the patients having to listen carefully and count the number of stimuli presented. In order to make the exercise more fun for children, we have chosen a wide variety of sounds:
In this way, a monotonous and boring task will become a fun a motivating task
Sustained Attenion is the main cognitive function that this game for kids works. Children must maintain their concentration in order to count all the sounds and make and effort not to get distracted.
"Counting” also works processing speed, because as the level increases, the audio clips play more quickly and the kids must be faster to process and count them, without missing any.
NeuronUP offers occupational therapists the possibility to customize the game for each patient according to their abilities. The aspects of the game the professional can personalize are:
The occupational therapist can also customize: the number of exercises to finish (total worked, passed, acceptable or failed), time limit, inclusion of an inactivity warning and whether to show an activity timer.
Also if you have any ideas, comments or suggestions about these activities for kids (or adults), please write to us at [email protected]. Remember, we build NeuronUP together!
