Inattention at 5 could leave children 3 months behind peers when leaving Primary School

In one of the largest studies to date, analyzing the attainment and behavior of 46,369 children from 1,812 primary schools in England, research published in Learning and Individual Differences has shown that young children may fall behind their peers academically if even mild attention problems go unnoticed.

The findings show that the progress of children with mild attention problems at the age of five could be around three months behind their peers by the time they reach the end of primary school.
