Help! How Do I Reach this Highly Distractible Child by Carol Barnier
- Can a simple 20 minute lesson drag into 2 hours? Does your little wiggler seem to fall out of his chair a great deal? Is he distracted by things others don’t even notice? Find out what you must change for this child to stay on task and learn. Instead of trying to make this child learn like most others, find the key that unlocks learning for the highly distractible child. We’ll cover how to put motion into learning, making math fun (no, really!) and how to make learning experiences that cement your child’s understanding of science, history, and language.
Reading Strategies for the Non-Reader by Andrew Pudewa
- As schools have made reading their new god, believing that producing good readers will solve all their academic problems, many children—the dyslexic, the easily distracted, the auditorily challenged—are truly left behind in the rush to improve test scores. What schools don’t know (but what many parents discover) is that reading is not simply being able to rapidly decode symbols with the eyes. With humor and insight, Andrew will share stories and strategies for helping students who need to engage the cognitive processes of reading, but who are more likely to excel through a wider variety of practical, creative, and imaginative approaches.
Brain Training by Cindy West

No matter where your child starts, you will see improvement in long and short term memory, processing speed, following directions, comprehension and more. Best of all, the methods are super easy and super fun.
