Here is a fun and easy way that readers from Kg through 3rd grade can be to encouraged to develop the art of attention to detail. Three levels provide 900 practice sentences as well as 450 questions to check their work. Now there is also a Junior level included!

You might ask:
Why are my children struggling with schoolwork and in life?
Why can’t they follow directions or remember to do their chores or brush their teeth?
It’s not your child’s fault, but may be a symptom of a brain foundation problem called “poor auditory processing”.
Years ago people believed that the brain couldn’t change, that it was hard-wired and a person was just stuck with what they had. Now we know that with specific game-like activities, the brain can gain abilities just like a muscle can gain strength. In this webinar you will hear about the wide-reaching effects of poor processing, how to test for it and what can be done to improve this vital skill.

Just like foundation issues in a building can cause all sorts of problems, foundation issues in a child’s brain can cause them to struggle to reach their full potential. Parents often wonder why their bright child has so many difficulties in school. They may even ask themselves, “Does my child have Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Low Auditory Processing or a form of Autism?”
Don’t brand your child with a label before exploring the “foundation” issues that can cause the symptoms you see. Become informed about how the brain works or often struggles to work. Learn practical skills that train the brain and unlock its full potential for a bright future for your child. If they’ve already received a label just know this, labels don’t have to last a lifetime! Learn how to make the change from “struggling” to “learning with ease”!
