can you develop and maintain a plan or strategy?
If you are you easily distracted or struggle to stay on task you may have a deficit in this area.
Individuals often struggle to build and follow a structured plan or set goals at school, work or within social situations. Individuals are often labelled as having a short attention span as they cannot consider all the relevant facts and they tend to focus on one or two areas which are usually not the main idea or area of focus.
They are unable to self-manage and tend to be passive in learning situations as they cannot effectively evaluate all relevant data or see their mistakes. Complex questions or maths exercises which require a thought process to be followed are beyond their current capability as they do not know how to start a task as they lack the mental initiative required to complete the exercise.
