Imagine a stage in a theater or auditorium. You are there to attend an important presentation. The stage is busy with props, furniture, and equipment. Everything there is interesting to view and you find yourself unable to pay attention to the presenter. The items on the stage take your mind away from the speaker on stage. The props are an obstacle. Now, imagine the same stage and the same speaker, this time with the stage completely dark except for a single bright spotlight on the presenter. When we work with our children with challenges in attention, removing obstacles to meaning while spotlighting what we want them to see is important.
