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.

What is Infercabulary?
Infercabulary is a fun online site that develops the language skills semantic reasoning skill and vocabulary. Instead of memorizing complex language-definitions, students can now learn to use semantic reasoning skills to actively infer the meaning of words based on seeing five images of the word used in different contexts. The activities use visual and audio cues to present lessons and game-like assessments make the process both fun and memorable. I have now implemented this software into my own private practice for session activities as well as home-fun assignments (I don’t give homework, I give optional home-fun suggestions). The best parts is I can track my student’s progress and growth.

How Can I Improve my Executive Functioning?

What is Executive Functioning? Executive functioning, or what I like to call the conductor of the brain, is the process of the mind gathering together and making sense of all the information we receive from our instruments or senses. Helping us to create meaning from what we see, hear, touch, taste and experience, executive functioning also allows us to focus our attention, think about new information, and make connections to what we already know. Many teachers and parents have trouble understanding how simple tasks such as remembering appointments, using an agenda or turning in assignments can be difficult, but unfortunately these and other similar tasks can be extremely challenging for some individuals. However, the good news is the part of the brain that manages executive functioning, which is called the frontal lobe, continues to develop through high school and college. Therefore, many kids that struggle with executive functioning can significantly improve their abilities.
