Professional Help

If your concentration problems are fairly mild, and you are just concerned with slips at work, then your health professional is likely to work on tasks that mimic the work situation. For example, if you need to read insurance policies at work, the therapist may arrange for old, anonymous policies to have errors or rogue words typed in at intervals. You will then read the documents, attempting to spot the errors, using various strategies. By measuring how well you do, the therapist can assess how effective a strategy is.

If your concentration problems are more severe, for example it is hard for you to follow a conversation that contains important information about your health, more factors will be taken into account. It is likely that key situations will be identified with you by your health professional. These will be individually targeted using a combination of strategies.
