Did you know that over the summer break the average student loses one to three months of math and reading gains made over the prior year? Academic losses are so common among students that educators have given the phenomena a name: Summer Brain Drain. This makes starting the following school year difficult.
Academic losses associated with sequestering for Covid and online schooling have now been dubbed the “Covid Slide.”
However, as reported by EducationWeek, “Education leaders are already bracing for a worse “summer slide” this year for students whose schools were shut down to curb the spread of coronavirus. But new research suggests the so-called coronavirus or “COVID Slide” is going to be significantly worse.
Summer Brain Drain may even be worse for ADHD students already having trouble with schoolwork.
You can take action this summer to make certain your child has the tools they need to combat the “Covid Slide” and ensure the transition into the next school year is a successful one!

“We started Play Attention toward the end of June, and Katelyn played the games consistently until school started in mid August.
The first day of school, her teacher came up to me and said, “Wow, I can see a HUGE difference in Katelyn this year! She’s paying attention, she’s focused, and she’s participating in class. She’s doing very well, and I’m so proud of her!” That’s when I knew without a doubt that Play Attention really does what they say it will.”
Weak executive function keeps your child from reaching their full potential. Your child will continue to struggle to pay attention, keep up with assignments, and develop positive relationships.
You have the power to help your child develop the skills required for a lifetime of success.
Now is the time to make a plan and take action. Do not let the Covid Slide allow your child to fall behind.
