First, as you'll learn, the greatest behavioral shift in history has occurred in young people that has never been understood which drives the struggle to pay attention. This is explained in detail in the workshop and the book Snapshot. All instruction directly addresses this factor and there is never a drop in attention span in any group of students with this behavioral trait.
Second, as explained in the book Snapshot and in the workshop, teachers in the late 1990s solved the riddle of what is often misdiagnosed as ADHD using the Korem Profiling System® and hundreds of students didn't need to take meds.
Today, regularly students and young adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD have used aspects of Snapshot to increase their attention span without medication.
(We of course do not provide medical advice, as there are a small percentage of people who may truly need some medication, but our experience in live training and follow-up coaching with students who are diagnosed that they do much better after learning Snapshot. This is consistent with what teachers have observed for over 20 years.
Here's something to think about ... there is a pattern of which teachers complain that students have ADHD (and they struggle to teach these students) and those teachers who never complain about students who have ADHD and do not struggle instructing these students. This and other riddles are explained in the workshop and the book Snapshot. (We have trained over 20K teachers on this trend and techniques that work to educate these students.)
