DS's working memory is terrible - 6th percentile, and it effects him a lot, social interactions, following instructions, academically at school. The psychologist that assessed him, suggested this program and it seems to have great data to back it up. We are looking at doing it over the xmas break, and would love to know if any of you tried it with your DC and how you found it....Did they enjoy it ? (looks like fun) and probably more importantly, did you see results

hi Wasuup3000 - I think DH and I have decided to go ahead with it - we'll do it over Xmas, so I will try and remember to post back to you.
Its funny, as as DS Sensory issues have come into balance, and his Dyspraxia is being helped, we can see that this working memory thing is a huge part of the picture, it is probably the single biggest barrier to him at school has taken awhile to understand it (for me at least), and I don't think his school gets it at all.
Anyway - I will try and get you posted
