Abstract

Concentration is a very important skill for a child because it provides an ability to focus and help to control momentary impulses. Concentration difficulty is a common problem among millions of children. concentration enhancement therapy helps to increase the concentration through various activity. STATEMENT “A study to assess the effectiveness of concentration enhancement therapy in improving concentration among school age children in selected hospitals at Kanyakumari District.” OBJECTIVES: To assess the pretest and post test level of concentration among selected school age children in experimental group and control group. To determine the effectiveness of concentration enhancement therapy by comparing the post test level of concentration among experimental and control group. To find out the association between the pre test level of concentration among selected school age children with their selected demographic variables such as age, gender, birth order, type of family, no of siblings, educational status of father, educational status of mother, father’s occupation, mother’s occupation, family income per month. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: The research design adopted for this study was true experimental design .The sample size was 60 and was drawn through simple random sampling technique. The feasibility of the study and the refinement of the tool were assessed through pilot study. The level of concentration was assessed by using James M Swanson modified concentration assessment scale The data collection for the main study was done from 24-9-2015 to 25-10-2015. Concentration enhancement therapy was applied for experimental group. Post test done after intervention period. The data gathered were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistical method. FINDINGS The findings concluded that in the experimental group,16(53.33%) had Low level concentration, 14(46.67%) had Medium level concentration, 0(0%) had High level concentration. In Control group, 15 (50%) had Low level concentration, 15 (50%) had Medium level concentration, 0(0%) had High level concentration. In Experimental group, 0 (0.00%) had Low level concentration, 20 (66.67%) had Medium level concentration, 10 (33.33%) had High level concentration. In Control group, 16 (53.33%) had Low level concentration, 14 (46.67%) had Medium level concentration, 0 (0.00%) had High level concentration. It revealed that, the mean score of selected school age children in Experimental group was 13.96 in pre test and 18.80 in post test. The paired ‘t’ value was 13.34* which is significant at p >0.05. In Control group the mean score of selected school age children was 12.66 in pre test and 12.96 in post test. The paired ‘t’ value was 0.902* which is significant at p >0.05. The mean score of selected school age children in Experimental group was 18.80 in post test and 12.96 in Control group post test. The estimated’ value was 5.35* which is significant at p > 0.05. Hence it was infered that concentration enhancement therapy was effective in improving the level of Concentration CONCLUSION Poor concentration is a major problem in the school age children with concentration. The investigator find that concentration enhancement therapy was effective in improving concentration.
