Not all students develop at the same pace, which is why helpful instruction pages include suggestions for adapting the challenges to fit the needs of each student.

The versatility of Art–for–Brains, THE BOOK makes it ideal for multilevel classrooms and households as well as therapeutic environments.

Begin the following activities as early as grade 1, though your 4th or 5th graders may benefit just as much:

Finish the Monster Drawing

- to strengthen visual closure (and more)

Word Play

- to strengthen visual discrimination (and more)

Visual Spatial Puzzle Play

The remaining brain boosting activities are best suited for grades 2 and above:

Graph Art for Auditory Memory
