REWIRING THE BRAIN THE “WRITE” WAY
To establish a stronger learning foundation, the Rewiring the Brain handbooks target specific areas of development to help kids excel academically in multiple ways. Learning if often compared to a pyramid because kids need to go through certain stages before fine tuning their skills for higher learning concepts. The Rewiring the Brain handbooks focus on each section of the pyramid to pave the way for higher learning to take place.
When we force kids to “skip” forward to a higher level of the pyramid they are not yet ready for, heightened emotions and behavior may manifest itself at home and at school. Each level builds on the next, creating a process to follow when teaching kids how to learn. Kids who use repetitive handwriting strokes benefit emotional and intellectually. Both the body and the brain need to complete each step of the pyramid before they are ready for the highest level of
learning. Using penmanship can help kids reach each level of the pyramid.
Level 1: Emotional Grounding
Level 2: Visual Processing
Level 3: Fine Motor
Level 4: Handwriting
FINGER TRACING PACKET
23-page packet with simple tracing activities designed for using the fingers and hands only. Tracing activities are intended to warm-up the brain for organization, visual stimulation and hand-eye coordination. Tracing activities help the hands and eyes work together for more challenging projects.
BREATHING EXERCISES PACKET
13-page packet with deep breathing exercises to help kids learn to self-regulate and calm down when in an emotional state. Breathing exercises can be done before or after handwriting activities for better focus. Techniques using deep breaths will support handwriting exercises, calm the mind and provide kids with tools to use during emotional moments.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THE REWIRING THE BRAIN HANDBOOKS?
“All we did was brain exercises and the Rewiring the Brain activities before going to school. Emotionally he is much better and has almost no emotional breakdowns like he used to. His handwriting is really not like it was so I am going to buy Part 2 as well.”

WHO’S THE EXEPERT WHO WROTE THE REWIRING THE BRAIN HANDBOOKS?
Hi I’m Alene. More than 25 years ago I found myself on the path to help many students find the missing pieces in their academic journey. For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out how to close the gaps. Kids who had trouble with long-term academic achievement weren’t retaining the information they were learning. More and more kids were emotional, had behavioral challenges and had ADHD-like symptoms preventing them from moving forward in the learning process.
I learned when the lower levels of the brain were not developed enough, kids struggled in areas that were getting in the way of higher learning concepts. They were still living on the right side of the brain where all the emotions are housed. How could a child learn if the brain wasn’t adequately ready for learning?
After a combination of purposeful movement and music intervention, we discovered using repetitive handwriting exercises helped the kids transition from right-brained learning to left-brained learning. Emotions became calmer, the kids were more focused, and they were more organized with homework and tasks. Tracing activities provide more impulse control to help fidgeting at school and doodling gave the brain a “break” to refocus.
When we discovered these improvements, I decided to put together exercises and activities supporting our efforts with students and children facing the same issues. The Rewiring the Brain Handbooks were created to help kids at different levels. Even older children benefit from these types of activities and exercises no matter their level of development.
If you are a parent or therapist with children who struggle emotionally, behaviorally and academically, the Rewiring the Brain Handbooks are for you. Participating in handwriting exercises will create a change in the brain and will pave the path for long-term learning. Our goal is to help learning become automatic and give kids the “write” tools to excel and succeed in the classroom.
What handbook should I choose for my child or students? Is it based on age?
The Rewiring the Brain handbooks are based on the level of the child rather than age. Even older kids and teenagers may benefit from the beginning level handbook, especially if they struggle with emotional development. Each handbook builds up to a higher and more challenging level. We recommend writing down the symptoms the child displays in emotional, behavioral and academic development to determine the level that best fits the child’s unique circumstances. Even if children complete the exercises easily, the goal is to continue repetitive strokes to help transition the brain from right-brained learning to left-brain learning.
What types of kids can benefit from this bundle?
The Rewiring the Brain Handbooks were designed for children who have trouble regulating emotions, writing letters and words on the page, and kids with attention and focus or behavioral delays. Any mainstream child can use these activities to help with higher learning. Children with diagnosed learning disabilities or challenges may also benefit from these handbooks.
Is there an option for a physical copy of each handbook?
Unfortunately, we do not have any physical copies of the handbooks available. All handbooks are digital and will be emailed directly to the email address on file. Digital handbooks provide parents and therapists with opportunities to use the handbook multiple times with multiple children. Printouts can be used over and over again for repetitive use. If your handbook(s) are not emailed to you at purchase, please email email@example.com for assistance.
Can I keep the handbooks forever?
Yes, once you purchase copies of each handbook, they are yours forever. Please remember to download them immediately to our computer or files when you receive the download links so you can access them easily anytime you need them.
As a reminder, your download links do expire after a certain period of time so you will want to download the handbooks before the links expire.
Can I reuse the activities?
Yes, we created digital copies specifically for your benefit. We want you to use these repetitive exercises over and over again, which means you will need to make multiple copies. A physical handbook typically only allows the participant to use the handbook once, where our goal is for you to utilize the handbooks as many times as you need them.
Where do I go if I have questions?
If you do not receive your digital copies of the handbooks through email or if you have general questions about the exercises and how to complete them, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will provide you with help and a response within 24 to 48 hours.
Is there a refund policy?
All sales are final for the Rewiring the Brain Handbooks. Because the handbooks are digital copies, there is no way to return them or to gain confirmation the exercises are not being used by the participant.
