Education dealers and retailers who have introduced and demonstrated the use of Folders for Focusing to their clients have found a very receptive audience. Charitable service organizations and homeschoolers have been the most responsive by providing this tool to children in their homes and communities for use in school, at home, or in both.
Folders for Focusing are tools that support childhood development of Executive Functioning Skills. They are attractive and sturdy tri-folds that provide privacy space for use at home or in school. Two dry erase boards offer easy ways to provide visual cues such as directions, to-do lists, and reminders.
By using the folders on a regular basis, teachers, parents, and staff persons can help children strengthen their ability to focus, pay attention, organize, plan, set priorities, get the work done, and improve their working memory. Common adult observations of students who use the folders include a calming effect, reduced distractions, and greater productivity.
