Hi, ds nearly 7 with global dev delay at 3 year old level. His attention span is very short and generally only motivated by things that interest him. I tend to do lots of brief, very active jump around things at home but he's moving into a much more structured school environment in Sept and I think I need some ideas and also to pass on some ideas to his LSA's. I'd really like to know what has worked for you and your dc, whether its activities, fiddle toys, reward systems. Thanks

My ds does a programme in school called Attention Autism which is specifically to build attention span and concentration. His teacher is trained to deliver it but I think you can get a dvd to learn how to do it rather than go on the training course. It has been really effective for him. Maybe stuff on you tube?

Not good with links. Hope this works...

Having fidget toys works for us as well.
