The first psychological program for ADHD, Developing Concentration and Self-Regulation proposes a series of activities and games for the enhancement of attention and self-regulation skills in preschool and school children, with the aim of preventing learning difficulties.

The program proposed in the three volumes in which the work is structured has been designed and tested experimentally in the framework of the training proposals promoted by the “Children’s Research Network” of Treviso, in collaboration with the University of Padua and the Provincial School Office of Treviso.

This second volume contains 23 units to learn how to exercise control over impulsive responses.  In particular, the child is taught to inhibit hasty behavior, to reflect before taking action, and to focus on delivery or on the situation and make a strategic choice to complete the activity.
