Fidget to Focus – Rotz & Wright

Book review

Should be mandatory read for teachers

In “Fidget to Focus: Outwit your Boredom, Sensory Strategies for Living with ADD” Roland Rotz & Sarah D. Wright throw light on a widely misunderstood neurological phenomenon. Namely fidgeting, doodling, listening to music can all help increase focus on the task at hand. Most teachers mistakenly still see fidgeting as a distraction.

This book is based on the personal experiences of hundreds of people and recent breakthroughs in neuroscience. It is full of tips, strategies and personal stories about how to stay focused and on track, even when tasks are dull, tedious, and boring.

Fidget to Focus is a short guide to keeping your brain engaged and focused. Science shows that is the overall level of stimulation to the brain is increased, even if on secondary tasks, then overall focus is increased. This book offers tools and techniques available to you at any time, workbook included, to help with focus.
