MITA includes bright, interactive puzzles designed to help children learn how to mentally integrate multiple features of an object, an ability proven to lead to vast improvements in general learning. Success with MITA could overtime result in significant improvements in a child’s overall development, specifically in the realms of language, attention and visual skills. MITA develops your child’s mental-integration ability and language functions. The visual exercises follow a systematic approach for developing your child’s ability to notice multiple features of an object. MITA starts with simple exercises that teach your child to attend to only one feature, such as size or color. Over time, the exercises get more difficult and require your child to attend to two features simultaneously, such as both color and size. Once your child has practiced attending to two features, the program moves on to puzzles that require attending to three features, such as color, size and shape and then eventually to puzzles that involve attending to an ever-increasing number of characteristics.
