If the brain was tired

Sooner or later almost all parents of school students face it. It is impossible to set him or her for lessons. And if it is possible, then for a while. To the favourite tutor on English does not wish to go. In the diary the records “Span at a Lesson, Disturbed Companions“ and unusual dispersion of estimates appear: the five alternately with the three and even the two. And you try to call the child for consciousness or to find out in what business, - so it just does not hear you … Teacher`s estimates:“ goes woolgathering “, “ can, but does not want “, “ clever, but disseminated“.


A most likely that outside - the end of the next educational quarter, in the daily schedule of the school student - anything, only not walks in the fresh air, and his growing brain … was tired. It was exhausted.

About that as well as why it occurs, the staff of the Center of a neuropsychology tells parents almost on each reception. Really, the most part of school difficulties of children is connected with so-called violation of neurodynamics of course nervously today - mental processes. That is work of a brain is complicated: or the fact that its different departments are insufficiently connected among themselves, or that the brain lacks energy.

- In this case the brain of the child works as a bulb in half-heat, - the doctor of psychological sciences, professor, the research supervisor of the center Zhanna Markovna Glozman explains. - To start some activity, activation of mental processes is necessary - and for this purpose there are not enough forces. Processes of braking and excitement are debalanced, and to switch from one business to another, they have to join consistently. Here also it turns out that the child, for example, sits all day over one task - cannot neither mobilize the forces, nor switch to something else.

- the Highest manifestation of similar fatigue, the instruction on the fact that the power of a brain suffers what the child should tone up, - the rash movements and actions, - the neurolinguist Aleksandra Evgenyevna Soboleva gets into conversation. - Then appear in the diary of record it seems “Interfered with sausage in others compote“. I assure you, the one to whom it was written down, quite normal child did not want to make harm at all: he just did not think that he does.

- Bad working capacity, as a rule, shows that the child needs first of all the neuropsychological help in combination with pedagogical and psychological support, - the neuropsychologist Anna Yurevna Potanina says. - We hold neuropsychological testing to concretize a problem, and we develop a complex of correctional actions. Surely we make to parents recommendations about the mode, a way of life, even to food. We prompt separate pedagogical receptions which will allow to make more effective, say, performance of homeworks. You see a number of councils on this page.

- And still we help to create with a family psychologically comfortable atmosphere for the child, - adds Alexander Sobolev. - Society around us is very often hostile to the person. The child needs absolutely to feel protected, successful, favourite.


- the Peace of mind of the child - the basis for his physical and brain wellbeing - sums up the result Zhanna Glozman. - One neuropathologist answered a question of parents as to them to treat the child:“ You love it“. For kids this main medicine. If you love it, you see it, and you will see its problem. The loving parent - he will take the child to the expert in time. And together with this expert forms the union which will help to overcome all problems.


As show neurodynamic difficulties?

How to do homeworks?

to Organize space . Besides the general hygienic requirements to a workplace, it has to be structured: let on a table, under a table, on the shelf, in a case there will be more boxes, boxes, various dividers, etc. helping to display things in places. The spatial structure that and in the head there was an order too is necessary for children.

to Watch time . To allocate short periods (10, 15 minutes) for performance of a separate task. To suggest the child to control itself: on hours with an arrow; by means of an alarm clock. It is useful that the alarm clock notified on the end of the long period (big homework; game + cleaning of toys). First call: it is time to begin to finish. Second call: end of activity.

to Maintain a rhythm . At problems with working capacity younger school students have to have it such: 20 minutes of activity, 10 minutes of a break.

to Work as

only at positive emotions . To note even the smallest progress. In a break something good has to expect a baby (he can not know that).
