100 Powerful Learning Specialist and Educational Therapy Materials

This week I wanted to tell you about my online store, Good Sensory Learning. I’m Dr. Erica Warren, and I established this site so I could share all the materials that I have created over the last 20+ years as a learning specialist and educational therapist. When I first began my private practice, Learning to Learn, I had great difficulty finding fun and multisensory materials for my students that were effective and engaging. So back in 2005, I made it my mission to design and distribute high-end, remedial products as well as memorable, motivating lessons that bring delight to learning. If you would like to try a free sampling of my activities , CLICK HERE . How Are the Products Organized at Good Sensory Learning? You can download my Free Printable Catalog or you can browse the site using the grey “search all products” bar in the top right of any page with keywords such as dyslexia, working memory, and executive functioning.

Finding the Best, Online Tutor or Specialist for Your Child


As many of you know, the process of finding the best after school, academic and remedial support for your child is plagued with many challenges. Even if you have a great evaluation that discloses your child’s learning strengths and weaknesses, it is difficult to find a local professional that has the expertise that your child needs.

The Lack of Skilled, Accessible Learning Specialists is a Great Frustration for Many Parents:
This is a huge challenge for many families in rural areas. What’s more, the costs for one-to-one services can be difficult to manage and many professionals are booked solid. Finally, many parents don’t have the time in their schedule to be driving their children round town from appointment to appointment.

But Things are Changing:
Every day, more and more trained tutors, learning specialists, and educational therapists have adopted online tools that allows them to provide high quality, multisensory academic and remedial support to our kids through the Internet.

But Many Important Questions Need to Be Addressed:
  1. How does one find skilled professionals online?
  2. What do all those titles mean, and which option is best for my child?
  3. How do I determine if they have the right skills?
  4. How do I figure out if they are the right person for my child?
My colleague and friend, Dr. Michael Hart and I would like to help you:
We have just launched a 4-part online workshop (and downloadable materials) that addresses all these questions and more!

We cover topics including:
  • The benefits of online instruction and remediation.
  • The types of key professionals that support students through online platforms.
  • How and where to find the best person to work with your child. 
  • The 14 best questions to ask when you interview prospective online candidates.
  • What online instruction and remediation sessions should look like--including a video demonstration.
Most importantly, when you register we’re going to provide you with two PDF documents that summarize the content and will help educate you, organize your search, and provide you the resources so you can find the best support for your child.

Teaching Students Metacognitive Strategies Improves Grades

We are living in an information, distraction-rich time and multitasking seems to be a common way of navigating the complexities of reality. Our youth have grown up observing their parents juggling multiple responsibilities at one time while they have also been immersed in the modern-day influx of technology.

Although there is some utility in life to being able to multitask, the learning process is hindered when attention continually shifts. In contrast, to this multitasking approach to learning is metacognition, and this can play a critical role in successful learning. How Can Students Learn to Do Schoolwork with Greater Efficiency?
