Albert Einstein said, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school”.
Many children have trouble paying attention in class at some point in their academic career.
When this happens, especially with young students, it leaves parents wondering why their child can’t focus—and whether he or she could have a learning difficulty.

In many cases, the concentration issues children have in school can be caused by a number of different reasons.
