Product Description
No Match Penguins as a really fun card game and cognitive remedial tool that exercises executive functioning skills: working memory, attention to detail, stamina, sustained attention and mental shifting. The game is great for morning workouts, brain breaks and center work. For remedial purposes, No Match Penguins requires players to find two cards that "don't match." Players compete to quickly find a "no match" and get rid of their cards - but it's not as easy as it sounds! Players have to focus on specific details. For one to 4 players/teams, this game can benefit students with executive functioning disorder, ADHD, learning disabilities, as well as the head injured and the elderly. No Match Penguin is a fabulous way to strengthen attention to visual details, attention and stamina - while having fun!

Research purports that children are not born with executive functioning skills, but they are born with the potential to develop them. Just like going to the gym strengthens ones body, games that exercise executive functioning skills improve cognition. According to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, “When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.”

I now have video demonstrations of each of my executive functioning card games.
