Transforming the capabilities of children (age 6-18 years) with learning difficulties, by providing parents with the tools, education and personalised support they need to unlock their child’s learning potential. An overwhelming body of evidence shows that at the heart of ADHD, autism and other learning difficulties are poor working memory and executive function skills. These skills CAN be improved and the effects are life changing! Time and time again I have worked with kids who have poor working memory/executive functioning who have not received any help to overcome these difficulties. I created the Switched-On Kids Cognition Program to specifically help you, help your child (ages 6 to 18) boost vital cognitive skills that underlie ALL learning. Click here for more info
