of the highly successful Intricate Minds programme designed
for middle and high school students. It includes interviews with
boys and girls aged 8 through 12 who describe what it’s like to
have conditions that make them act differently at school. Intricate
Minds III can help classmates avoid the trap of ignoring or

Breakthrough: Secrets to Turning On the Tuned-Out Child.
Richard Lavoie, DVD $52.95 (90 minutes)
Motivation is the key to learning.
But very few parents and teachers have an effective arsenal
of techniques at their disposal. Acclaimed author Rick Lavoie
arms all those who deal with children with proven, effective
tools and strategies they can use to encourage any child to
learn and achieve success. Lavoie explores motivational styles,
presenting proven techniques, strategies, and scripts that
can be used in the classroom and at home to break through a
child's apathy and discouragement and inspire him/her to succeed
and achieve. Along the way, Lavoie explodes some common myths
about motivation: for instance, he demonstrates that rewards,
punishment, and competition are not effective motivational
tools. He gives specific advice throughout for parents and
teachers of children with learning disabilities and provides
detailed instructions for how to create a motivated classroom.
