One Texas School triples Recess Time

When I read that article, it actually surprised me most that the reporter, teachers and parents were actually surprised by the positive outcome of that measure. I have found when working with children that they need a lot of short breaks, especially after something new and profound has been introduced to them. We allow them to allocate their own recess – and this has never been abused. Sometimes the opposite happens: children don’t take enough short breaks and try to push through, when things get tough. I have found it much more useful to stop and start quite often. It creates new neural pathways in our brain and makes it increasingly simple to travel them and become prolific at a new learning experience.

I am working with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses and have opened a centre to expand Sydney Dyslexia to another location right on the beach at the Entrance North. I have written two books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time' and 'Nurturing the Secret Garden') as I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field.
