Praful concentrating on his clay work

This wonderful boy is not able to do too well in academics. Rather I must say that he finds immense difficulty in paying attention to anything that requires him to remember. He is always full of energy and finds it difficult to contain himself and it leads to other kids at time getting disturbed with his behaviour.

On the flip side,  look at the way he is trying to concentrate to create the shape of an idol using clay. This was done as part of the art therapy being handled by an able volunteer with the foundation.

This process of allowing children to express their skills and mental states using works of art leads to much more relaxed behaviour when children are required to focus on things which call for deeper attention of mind. If a teacher gets a grip on what the strengths and areas of interest of a child are, the task of helping the child concentrate on other aspects becomes easier.
