Attention is a complex cognitive ability that touches upon many cortical and subcortical areas. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain we use for willful attention, when we deliberately need to focus on a task like studying for a test or memorizing a telephone number to call. Attention functions are primarily concentrated in the frontal areas of the brain, with overlap in areas responsible for executive functioning and working memory.
Here is our 25th packet of free worksheets. Designed for healthcare professionals, these worksheets can be used with patients to practice and work on cognitive skills impacted by traumatic brain injuries.
In this worksheet, we provide you with 5 exercises to use with your clients to practice strategies related to attention. Your client will be exposed to different task requirements, all sharing the underlying component of attention. Other functions also challenged in this worksheet include working memory and visual-spatial skills.
Our goal is to support the community of healthcare professionals providing cognitive rehabilitation therapy by regularly adding new resources for them to use with their clients.
Please feel free to download, print, and use these worksheets as you wish.
