Reversing Reversals: Orton Gillingham, dyslexia & tracking

Reversing Reversals: Orton Gillingham, dyslexia & tracking

Please note that the printed workbook is in black and white print and the digital download is in color. Difficulties in discriminating letters and numbers, and even reversals of an image are common when children begin using the written language. Some also struggle with directionality, such as discriminating left from right and east from west. Although most children do encounter this challenge to some degree, there are those that find this to be a pervasive problem. For those that struggle with visual discrimination, sequencing, image reversals and tracking, this workbook can help to strengthen abilities through fun and entertaining activities. This is a form of cognitive therapy that can be used by therapists, teachers and even parents. Here is my most recent review on Amazon: My youngest daughter has had vision therapy for over a year and still had issues with number and letter reversals, so her doctor suggested that we purchase this workbook. My daughter has much fewer reversals or if she does reverse something she sees it immediately and corrects the problem. Between the hours of vision therapy and this workbook, my daughter has gone from failing classes in school to being on the honor roll. Thank you!

Executive Functioning Card Game: Memory Master

Executive Functioning Card Game: Memory Master

Memory Master is a fun game and cognitive remedial tool that strengthens executive functioning skills: working memory, management of distractions, attention to detail, stamina, response inhibition, as well as sustaining attention and mental shifting. For remedial purposes, Memory Master helps players learn to encode and recall a series of directives. Players pick a card and then hear the directives from the administrator. The player then "says it" (repeats back the directives), "sees it" (visualizes and adds sensory details to the directives) and then "shows it" (acts out the directives). After a distraction, players see what they can remember. For one to 4 players, this game can benefit students with ADHD, learning disabilities, executive functioning disorder as well as the head injured and the elderly. Memory Master is a fabulous way to strengthen the brain - while having fun! The research suggests that children are not born with executive functioning skills, however, they are born with the potential to develop them. Just like going to the gym strengthens the body, activities that exercise executive functioning skills improves mental capacity. According to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, “When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.” Here is a video demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PeBYnIYIRM

Mindful Activity Cards for Developing Emotional Intelligence

Mindful Activity Cards for Developing Emotional Intelligence

Dr. Warren’s Mindfulness Activity Cards were created based on the current research on emotional intelligence and social emotional learning, and they can be used in classrooms or therapeutic sessions to help develop emotional intelligence, resilience, and community. In addition, they can be used to teach authentic dialogue and develop self esteem. They are ideal for individual sessions, round table discussions, and circle groups. Mindfulness-based approaches to learning are attracting more attention by teachers and administrators. These methods help students, as well as their teachers, learn how to manage and minimize stress, enhance memory and learning, improve classroom climates, focus attention, and even develop supportive communities. Mindfulness-based practices empower students to self-regulate, develop emotional intelligence, and gain a sense of control over both their minds and bodies. Students today are faced with innumerable distractions including electronic devices, competitive classroom environments, ever-increasing administrative expectations, and both real and virtual violence. Additionally, many youngsters interact with others through their electronic devices, and they are not learning to read important social cues. As a result, their emotional intelligence suffers. Neuroscience also supports a holistic approach to cognitive, social, and emotional development. Recent research shows that the prefrontal cortex, which manages higher-level cognition, also plays an important role in processing and regulating emotion. Thus, learning involves both a cognitive and affective framework. So what does mindfulness have to do with emotional intelligence? Psychology Today defines emotional intelligence as the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and those of other people. It involves the following three skills: emotional awareness, emotional application, and emotional management. Some believe that mindfulness is the foundation of emotional intelligence. By exercising our attention through mindfulness, we can actually teach the brain to become more emotionally astute. As an added benefit, people with high levels of emotional intelligence usually display high levels of resilience, experience more trusting relationships, and they are better able to manage their social interactions, attitude and temperament.
