This way, we assist the student in making the correlation between their distracting behaviours and their ability to pay attention and the impact it has in the classroom or during homework time etc.  Being mindful is being mindful of the task at hand, regardless of distractions. Our program has incorporated ways to make sure that the student isn’t daydreaming while doing the exercises. Some of the exercises have built-in distractors to which the student must respond to or ignore. This ensures that the student is not thinking about other things (daydreaming) and forces them to focus only on the task at hand; forces them to be mindful.  Each exercise requires attention (active engagement), implements behaviour shaping and improves mindfulness, but each exercise also develops and strengthens a specific cognitive skill.
