Improving concentration in children can be achieved not only by using clinically proven natural medicines, but also by exposing them to training in the fundamental cognitive skills that underlie the learning process.
Research conducted in Singapore in 2014 and analysed by the Centre for Evaluation and Assessment at the University of Pretoria has shown that concentration in children may be achieved naturally without the administration of a pharmaceutical drug. The study measured the improvement in concentration of 27 English-speaking schoolchildren in Singapore, aged 10 to 12, after they had attended a condensed 15-hour, five-day training programme in cognitive skills compiled by the South African reading and learning clinic, Edublox.
Sponsored by natural medicines company, SFI Health, the study tracked the performance of 27 learners before and after they had completed the intensive cognitive skills training programme. Their results were compared with those of a control group of 25 children of the same age, who also participated in the pre- and post-performance tests, but without exposure to the training in between.
