Focused attention is one of the main concerns parents of young and tween children have been expressing to educators. While absenteeism has risen during the 2020-2021 school year, the students who are present in class may still be struggling to be present. Are they attending to and retaining the lessons being taught virtually? Here are some signs parents can look for that shows a child may be struggling to pay attention in class:

  • Fail to give close attention to details
  • Not following through in tasks
  • Difficulty organizing tasks and activities 
  • Blurting out an answer before a question is completed
  • Difficulty waiting their turn
  • Wiggly, fidgeting/squirming
  • Leaving their seat
  • Lose belongings
  • Being forgetful 

The best way to support a child when you see these signs is to look at the cause of the behavior. If it’s hard for your child to listen, understand, and follow through with an activity, let’s ask: are these symptoms of inattention an imbalance, or is the task just not interesting to them in the way they’re doing it? What distractions may be impeding their attention, and perhaps most importantly, why should they complete this task?

Incentives can make a world of difference in how engaged your child is in a task at hand, and what they are able to accomplish. Here are some changes you can make to your child’s day that will set them up for success. 

 

Give kids breaks throughout the day. 

Just like a regular school day, breaks should be part of a regular schedule, and be a true mental rest. A healthy break should involve changing the physical space from where they work to where they rest. Encourage them to involve movement such as stretching, walking, taking a quick bike ride, or jumping on a mini trampoline. 

Want some variety to choose from to make breaks dynamic? Students can follow along with these group videos. 

 

Implement a sticker system

This is especially helpful for younger children (10 and under) to support follow-through. With a simple DIY poster or chart, your child can earn a set amount of stickers or tokens for each task as they complete it. When they’ve earned them all, they get a reward (e.g. break, toy, game). The great thing about this motivator is that it can be tailored exactly to your child’s interests. The “tokens” they earn can be nearly anything they like: pictures of their favorite character, food, sport ball–the options are endless. 

For older students and teens, a more mature version of this that still packs a punch would be to list out the responsibilities they have ahead of them for the day so that they can see it and check it off as they go. Write what they will earn on the list when they are finished. 

 

Involve others

Talk with your child’s teacher about what your child liked in the classroom–it may be something you don’t have at home! If possible, try coordinating breaks or lunches with neighbors. Why take breaks alone when peers in the neighborhood may be looking for someone to have “recess” with as well?

 

Keep in mind that what may work one day may not work the next. It’s important to keep a robust toolbox to choose from when motivating attention. It’s normal for a child to find something motivating at one point and then lose interest in it later. The most parents can do is set kids up for success.

Triton exists to serve families and students where they have the greatest needs. Triton began this journey in the midst of a pandemic last year–a time when parents were desperate for school support. Now, over a year after school closures, select schools are just starting to return to classes in person, with many continuing distance learning. This is why Triton focuses on educational therapy that is one-on-one, and is designed to target a student’s needs and challenges as an individual. 

Why education therapy?

Learning Loss

The duration of distance learning has greatly impacted students’ academic growth and social-emotional development. According to a report on high school students in Los Angeles, 40,000 of them are at risk of not graduating this year, 6,000 of them this year alone. “In middle school, about a third of students in the district are currently on grade level in reading and math. Some of the worst learning loss was found in the early grades, where reading skills declined the most in kindergarten and first grade compared to the 2019-20 school year” (Yahoo! News). Great Public Schools Now describes the losses L.A.’s youngest students are experiencing according to annual assessments.

According to early literacy assessment results from the beginning of the 2020-21 academic year, 49% of students in grades K-5 were on track in early reading skills, compared to 59% at the be- ginning of the 2019-20 academic year, just before the pandemic. When K-5 students were tested again in the middle of the 2020-21 academic year, results remained stagnant with 49% on track. Students in kindergarten and first grade suffered the biggest learning losses, with the percentage of students not on track increasing by 13- 20%. Literacy skills in those early grades are critical for students to learn how to read. Without additional support, there is a 90% chance that a struggling reader in first grade will remain a struggling reader.

Strengthening sensory cognitive skills

Triton offers the intervention struggling readers need, and we offer a multisensory approach to instruction that typical classrooms do not incorporate. When it comes to teaching reading, the average student is expected to learn to read using phonics and memorization. For a typical student, this may be sufficient for literacy; yet it is taught with the assumption that the underlying sensory cognitive skills that support literacy are stable. Orthographic processing and phonological awareness are two key skills essential for literacy. For students who have weaknesses in these areas, reading will be a struggle until they are addressed. With Triton’s approach, students work one-on-one with instructors to strengthen these underlying functions, allowing literacy to become possible. 

Literacy, however, is only the beginning of learning. Comprehension and critical thinking can present challenges for students even if they are strong readers. This is because understanding what you language relies on a different skill than reading words. Concept imagery is the ability to hold a mental image or picture of an object or idea. This is an essential skill to understanding what you read and even how you use and interpret spoken language. Without strong concept imagery, a student will rely on memorizing the words they read, rather than picturing it in their mind’s eye. Memorization without imagery will not sustain understanding. 

What does Triton’s education therapy look like?

Education therapy is not tutoring. Traditional tutors focus on academics and typically act as a second teacher to help a child complete work already assigned to them from school. Educational therapists use a broader approach. This illustration from Understood explains, “If your child has dyscalculia and math anxiety, a tutor might practice math problems over and over. An educational therapist, on the other hand, might see that your child struggles with number sense. She might teach your child strategies for recognizing basic number facts, or suggest accommodations. She might also teach your child coping skills for anxiety.” Triton’s education therapy focuses on providing students with the tools they currently lack so that they can become more independent in school and life. 

Prior to instruction, every student is assessed with a multisensory evaluation that determines where their current skills lie in areas of language comprehension, phonics, literacy and comprehension. Based on their performance, students receive specialized instruction tailored to their needs. Their education plan can focus on everything from literacy to social emotional skills to language acquisition. Triton’s instructors work one on one with each student to strengthen their sensory cognitive skills through imagery techniques. These techniques develop a student’s mental acuity in picturing letters, words, and concepts. Read more about our multisensory instruction here

Triton’s multisensory instruction is founded on the principle that imagery is the key to learning. Without intensive instruction, students who fall behind rarely catch up on their own. It’s no secret that performance in school is not merely a matter of willpower. Students who are disengaged or completely lost in a virtual setting can’t rely on a prayer. Triton’s in-person educational intervention is designed to help each student perform to their potential in an environment they are excited about.

Multisensory instruction is a powerful alternative to standard practices for teaching reading. Especially for children with dyslexia and other reading disabilities, multisensory methods open up a new world of opportunity on the road to literacy and education. Triton takes a multisensory approach to instruction, and coaches parents on how they can incorporate these simple strategies at home.

Literacy involves the use of two key cognitive functions: orthographic processing and phonological awareness. Let’s dive into what roles these functions play, and how a multisensory approach strengthens them. 

Phonological Awareness

This function also contributes to the ability to know how many sounds are in a word, how many syllables are in a word and what each syllable sounds like, and how many words are in a sentence. Read more here about phonological awareness.

Phonemic awareness, part of phonological awareness, is the ability to distinguish individual sounds within words and hear the differences between them. For example, some sounds that are commonly confused are -ch and -sh, or the short vowel sounds for i and e. This also helps a child identify singular sounds within words and being able to manipulate the sounds. This ability to hear the differences in sounds will help them sound out new words. 

Orthographic processing 

Awareness of sounds is not the only skill we need to read. Given that only one third of all words in the English language are phonetic, it would not only be arduous to sound them all out, it would be impossible. Hence, literacy cannot happen without strong orthographic processing. 

This is the ability to create mental representations of letters, and therefore recognize whole words upon sight. This process is essentially what we would call visual memory. Visual memory is essential to reading fluency. Students who struggle with reading fluency may struggle to recognize common words that cannot be sounded out, such as you, of, what, come, etc. Imagine the difficulty with reading if every time you saw a word, it felt like the first time! 

“Students with weak orthographic processing will rely heavily on sounding out very common words that should be in memory, leading to a choppy, halting style of decoding sometimes called “spit-and-grunt” decoding. They will likely confuse simple words like ‘it’ and ‘on’, and may not be able to apply their knowledge of root words to decode a variation of the word. The student’s ability to image individual letters is linked to orthographic processing as well. If the shape and orientation of a letter is not firmly rooted in the student’s visual memory, she may reverse letters and not notice that they look wrong.” (Applied Learning Processes)

So let’s get down to how we can strengthen these processes with multisensory learning. Here are some methods Triton uses in instruction that parents can easily try at home!

Airwriting

Students employ this practice to aid in visual memory. They “write” the letters to a word in the air, imagining what each letter looks like. The child says each letter as they write it. A modified form of this for students just starting to practice imagining letters and words, they can write with their finger on a surface, such as a table or wall. Airwriting can be done by spelling out the letters to a given word, or writing given letters and then saying the word they spell. 

Sand or shaving cream writing

This practice is great for so many reasons. Not only does it make reading a game, it involves a tactile component to word formation. Children write out letters in sand or shaving cream on a baking sheet, saying the sound for each letter, then saying the whole word at the end. This is a fantastic technique for children who show anxiety or resistance when it comes to reading. It can be presented as just messing around for fun without any pressure to “get it right”; after all, it’s just sand! It can easily be wiped away! 

Sandpaper letters

Writing letters on sandpaper adds a tactile component to letter imagery. Adding the tactile component solidifies the mental imagery of the letter they write. For very young children, using a letter stencil on a piece of paper can help guide them fingers in the letter formation. 

Word Building 

Letter tiles or magnets help children build basic words. Rather than simply giving the child a word and asking them to read it, children build their own words, which provides them more variety and simplicity. These words do not have to be real. Practicing word chains with a single change, such as fă, tă, să, dă, yă, allows a child to focus on only one letter while still blending sounds together. One-letter changes can be necessary for very young or severe students.

Triton’s multisensory approach to teaching reading uses simple and effective techniques that really work! One of the best parts about Triton’s instruction is that parents are at the center of growth! Through consistent parent coaching, these practices can be applied effectively at home for lasting transformation!

Does your child understand personal space? Do their friends? Young children can sometimes be unaware of what personal space is, and why it’s important for interacting with others. We know we need to teach children about personal space if we see them invading others’ personal space, or showing signs of discomfort or stress when their space is invaded. 

 

When we talk to kids about personal space, using a metaphor can help them understand why we need it. For instance, when we see cars on the highway, they are all moving together and yet they never come close enough to touch each other. They each give each other enough space so everyone feels safe. People are the same way!

 

Our Education Specialist, Julianne Bigler, gives some examples of games and props anyone can use to illustrate personal space in an engaging way for kids. 

 

Provide a concrete representation

Use a carpet square, mat, or hula hoop to represent a child’s personal space. Tell them to imagine there is a bubble surrounding their space that only they can be inside. Children can explore the bounds of their space in many different ways. Tell the child to imagine they have a paintbrush in their hand and they are going to paint the inside of their bubble. When they get to “paint” their bubble how they want, this gives them a sense of ownership around it, making them more likely to preserve it.

 

Bring awareness to their body

While inside their personal bubble, have children bring awareness to their bodies by acting out movements that explore high, medium, and low, as well as what their body can do inside their bubble. They can show how high and low they can get, how far their arms reach and legs stretch while remaining inside their bubble. Children can pretend they are plucking a star from the sky, playing a board game, or picking a flower. The song “Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” is a perfect song for this activity. Bring as much fun into this as possible! The more differentiated motor skills they practice, the more control they begin to gain over their body. 

 

Play personal space games

“Shrinking Room” is a game that requires children to adjust their bodies to accommodate for personal space in a changing environment. Children hold hoops and must be careful not to touch anyone else’s hoops while playing. The adult acts as a moveable wall with their arms out to the side. When they take a step forward, there is less space available, and the children must move so that they and their neighbors have enough space. 

A modified “Red Light, Green Light” can also teach personal space. Have one child who will demonstrate their need for personal space stand at one end of the room, and the others stand at the opposite end. One child advances (not running) toward the one who is “it”. The child who is “it” will hold up their hand in a “stop” signal when the child walking toward them gets close enough. To gauge the appropriate amount of space, use a carpet mat, or establish the “arm’s length away” rule. 

Some children may struggle more than others with personal space due to vestibular processing difficulties. The vestibular system helps our bodies detect and interpret movement. Children with a vestibular dysfunction struggle with motor skills and can present as clumsy. These children tend to invade others’ personal space without realizing the discomfort it causes other people. Simply telling a child with these difficulties what they “should” do to respect this space is not effective. Presenting a physical model for them develops the vestibular awareness they need. The following exercise can bring awareness to personal space by experiencing their own space being invaded. 

 

While the child stands inside a small hoop they are holding, have someone else come inside their hoop. Note how the child responds. Do they back up, shy away, or in other ways establish personal space? This exercise gives them a good metric of the space to give others. If they are uncomfortable when their space is invaded, this is a perfect time to help them advocate for themselves by requesting space or backing away. 

 

Using a social story is a tool many children find helpful. A personal story should outline what personal space is, what good personal space looks like, social cues for a child to look for to determine whether or not they are personal space invaders, and what to do when they need personal space.

 

One aspect these activities do not address when first teaching personal space, is that our bubbles fluctuate. After a child has mastered their space with concrete objects, teach them how our abstract bubbles shrink and expand depending on who we’re with. Talk with your child or student about the differences in how close we get with our family, friends, acquaintances, and community members. Role playing can make this a fun to practice while in a safe space. When implementing this task, take turns playing different people the child may encounter any given day. 

 

This visual from Social Skilled Kids illustrates how personal space changes depending on who we are with. This is a helpful visual to hang in a classroom for children to reference when they need.

Stay tuned for Julianne’s full video on personal space later this week!

This school year, our children have experienced academic regression unlike ever before. The virtual education students have received for the past year has included everything from technical difficulties to lack of student engagement, and even a deterioration of mental well-being. Some parents have thrown the towel in and disenrolled their child from school altogether.  

Most students have lost a lot of ground in the meantime due to an entire year of ill-equipped virtual learning. Skills they once mastered long ago now present a challenge for them; and it’s showing up more than one area. 

“It’s painful to watch our children suffer in the midst of this”. 

Parents have watched students’ confidence and motivation decline drastically, their discouragement at attending “class” without personal interaction with their peers, and their overall learning declining. Besides the learning recession, this has become a larger mental health crisis for many students. 

Parents of children with special needs have grave concerns about their child’s development. The social and academic loss for special needs students is so significant, many parents fear the past year will have caused a lifelong impact on their children. Many little ones within the sensitive age window of 3-6 are most at risk. 

If we aren’t addressing this learning loss now, when are they going to catch up? 

Triton is here to step in when it comes to academic regression. Triton is offering a free online activity for parents who want to know what they can do right now to address learning loss. This 30-minute activity helps parents identify areas their child has regressed, and what their current skills are. 

If you’re a parent, and you’re not willing to wait until schools “return to normal”, Triton provides in-person services your child can receive today. Triton’s offerings include:

  • Multidisciplinary evaluations
  • Speech Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy 
  • Educational Therapy
  • Ongoing Parent coaching

Sometimes children are quick to make friends, but building friendships through communication doesn’t come naturally for every student. If you’re a parent, you are about to discover the Top 5 Ways that YOU can help your child Develop Social Skills and build friendships that bring joy and fun to learning!

Pragmatic language is the way we understand and use language in our daily routines and interactions with others. What have you noticed lately about your child’s pragmatics? 

Parents may notice regression in their child’s pragmatic language compared with one year ago, due to Covid-19 and the effects of distance learning. Without the dynamic interactions children regularly have with their friends, teachers, caregivers, extended family, and even strangers in public, social communication has declined (regression titled #covidslide). 

Language pragmatics involve verbal and nonverbal elements. Verbal communication involves using basic skills like initiating conversation and forming appropriate questions and responses, as well as higher skills, such as: interpreting sarcasm, jokes, and metaphor, and using language to reason, negotiate or persuade. 

Difficulty with pragmatic language can look like interrupted thoughts or difficulty maintaining a topic, starting or ending conversations, or difficulty using appropriate body language. These pragmatic issues can sometimes show when a social communication disorder is present. 

There is no known cause or “cure” for a social communication disorder (SCD), but skills can be enhanced with Speech Language therapy.

Students with a SCD work on mock situations they find particularly challenging within the safety of therapy. They may practice the following: 

  •  interpreting social situations through stories
  •  identify what is “right or wrong” about a mock social situation
  •  role play
  •  be exposed to new social situations that enhance their skills

Speech Language Pathologist, Heather Ismay, gives her tips for parents looking to help their children at home.

  • Have a family game night

This should involve all members of the family and require everyone to contribute. Something as simple as playing Candyland brings everyone together and requires group effort. 

  • Plan weekly playdates

Social interaction with a peer is crucial for each individual child. These should be no less than once a week, even if a child has siblings at home. Being in a new environment allows your child to experience situations that may not come up at home.

  • Include children in visits with family members

Allowing your child to take part in visits that involve people of all ages is a great way to create a dynamic environment and many growth opportunities. 

  • Plan family outings

Changing the place of where children spend time exposes them to situations in which they need to use different skills of reasoning, as well as see different types of people. Get fun ideas for outings, recipes, games, and more at www.macaronikid.com!

  • Talk to your child about social communication

Sometimes children need explicit information to understand proper social communication. Teaching etiquette in the safety of the home will make give your child the tools they need to apply it to a real-world situation.

What are multidisciplinary evaluations? Today, we are going to answer this question, including: what to expect through the process, what does it offer for parents and teachers, and how does it help education, ongoing?

Triton Support Services multidisciplinary evaluations establish a baseline of your child’s current abilities education with regard to “compensatory services”, including: academic learning, Speech & Language, and Occupational Therapy (sensory regulation). Triton’s team works together to evaluate your child using standardized tests to assess how they are functioning in relation to national norms. Incorporating parent concerns, evaluations may include any number of skills including but not limited to: reading fluency, language and vocabulary, articulation and phonology, motor skills, sensory processing, and social emotional awareness. 

The complete, multidisciplinary evaluation only takes about three hours to complete. 

Parents meet with our Director of Programs, through an online or in clinic consultation, after the evaluation to go over their child’s performance. This consultation offers a thorough  recommendation for instruction. Every recommendation is unique, as every child is unique and will perform differently. Some students will benefit the most from daily therapy, whereas others may need only once a week. Our students vary in their age, needs and abilities, and therefore need our individualized instruction that is tailored specifically to them. 

Students can attend their instruction sessions either in person, at our center in Rancho Bernardo, or online. 

In addition to providing multidisciplinary therapies to our students, we incorporate parents as an integral part of our process. Providers meet with parents biweekly in Parent Coaching sessions to discuss a child’s instructional goals and response to instruction. Parents receive a written report detailing their child’s current progress, and learn about implementing these objectives at home when necessary. 

If you are ready to get started, or would like more information about Triton’s Multidisciplinary Evaluations, please fill out this form to contact our Parent Representative.

At Triton Support Services, our focus is school-aged children with cognitive and language delays, social-emotional challenges, and/or sensory and motor difficulties. Our team of parent representatives, educational specialists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists will help break those barriers that are impacting a child’s daily life through a client-centered approach. This centers treatment around the client’s strengths and abilities, working closely with parents and other disciplines to address and meet the child’s needs, and help lay the foundation to become successful individuals in the home, school, and community.

When interacting with or observing your child, have any of their behaviors caused concern? Do you wonder if it’s a phase they’ll eventually grow out of? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or out of ideas? Do you feel like you need additional support in better understanding your child? At Triton, we help parents take the first step toward getting the guidance they need to not only help their child, but help themselves.

Children may require services with or without a diagnosis or medical condition. However, there are certain conditions that may raise red flags, indicating that a child may be “at risk” for delays in skills that impact their ability to meet milestones.

The Triton team is comprised of highly skilled professionals trained to assist children with some of the challenges listed below:

  • Communication & social skills
  • Emotional regulation
  • Self-regulation
  • Sensory processing
  • Daily living skills
  • Motor planning
  • Gross-motor skills
  • Fine-motor skills
  • Transitioning

All of these skills are vital for children to fully participate in their daily routine. With the vast knowledge within Triton’s team, we look at the whole child to determine the underlying cause that’s impacting their ability to participate in the home, school, and community.

We serve the needs of the child, and their support system, in a holistic manner. Our goal is to assist children in their growth toward autonomy. We identify the strengths of each child, and adapt to their needs.


MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to provide a multisensory educational care platform for students, while providing support and coaching for their families. We use a team approach to provide efficient and effective services, helping special needs children to thrive.
