What You Get
This booklet series is the culmination of over a decade of research dedicated to finding out the answer to one single question: Why do some students succeed while others struggle? We know that a lot of things contribute to a student’s grades. Things like diet, money, and social background. But one thing, more than any of these, makes the biggest difference. The answer to the question is WORKING MEMORY. Although the answer is clear, not everyone knows about it yet. The 20 years has seen an explosion of scientific research on Working Memory, but it has not yet filtered down to parents and educators. We are passionate about helping your children succeed with the power of Working Memory.
