1. Pair up the figures
Pair up the figures has been the exercise most used by professionals in 2016. This is a task to train selective attention in which clients have to match the same pictures.
This worksheet is both in paper and digital format. A range of difficulty levels is available—from basic to advanced— so that the therapist can select the level that is most appropriate for the client’s capabilities.
