Cognitive Yoga

Don’t tell me what to do !

A surly attitude may seem chronic with ADD students . Along with being utterly saturated with corrections when you tell them what to do it is a cognitively demanding task. First the student must stop their own head chatter and listen to you. Then they have to comprehend what you said, next they have to follow and execute those instructions while simultaneously giving up their own preference. It is not so much that they don’t think what you tell them it a good idea, it is just more effort to process the input.
