Proven strategies to help kids learn faster and better, from bestselling author Bill Handley

Kids who succeed at school aren't necessarily smarter than other kids. Often, they're simply better at learning. Speed Learning for Kids helps you teach your child how to thrive at school by learning more in less time with less effort. The brain-training techniques in this book will enable kids to not just learn faster, but enjoy their learning, memorise as they go, and absorb as much in ten minutes as they normally would in two hours of study.

How is it possible? These nontraditional techniques aren't mysterious, they're just not often taught. Any child can learn to learn, and the results really matter—with improved concentration, better short- and long-term memory, more creative thinking, and better memory and reading comprehension skills.

  • Includes study techniques that replace rote learning to achieve better test results on everything from spelling tests, NAPLAN and entrance exams
  • Written by Bill Handley, author of the bestselling books Teach Your Children Tables and Speed Maths for Kids
  • Features brain-training techniques that will not only improve school performance, but also improve problem-solving and creative thinking for long-term career success
