What families say about Focus 1-2-3:
"Focus 1-2-3 has been fantastic for my older daughter. She's in 2nd grade and struggles to finish her homework in one sitting. We take a break with her choice of activity. She reads, then follows the directions - and her younger sister (grade K) joins in. It's made such a difference and she looks forward to picking a card for her homework on a daily basis!"
Amy Davidson, Mom
"I have a kindergartner who has been showing signs of attention deficit (she is only 5) so we have been using Focus 1-2-3 at home and what a help it has turned out to be for her. When we are doing her homework and even things around the house we use our cards to get her focused and engaged on the task at hand. It has proved to be the most useful tool we have come across. I also use it when my kids are arguing - it really helps to break things up and calm them down. I am a huge Focus 1-2-3 fan!"
Victoria Gangi, Mom

"Children need to move! Not just for the sake of their physical selves, but also their social emotional and cognitive development. Focus 1-2-3 is smart, effective and necessary."
Rae Pica, Early Childhood Educator, Founder, Moving and Learning
“For teachers who are making nearly as many moment to moment decisions as air traffic controllers, Focus 1-2-3 encourages them to bring their awareness to the energy level of the class in an open and curious way and then feel empowered to have practical, easy and fun card activities to bring the classroom energy level together and create greater connections and cohesiveness within the classroom.”
Rochelle McLaughlin, MS, OTR/L, Mindfulness-Based Occupational Therapy, Stanford Hospital
“The latest neuroscience research proves that children and grown-ups alike need to keep moving regularly throughout the day in order to think effectively. It’s not enough to work out once a day to keep the body and brain healthy. Focus 1-2-3 keeps students moving all day long, keeping their brains well oxygenated for better learning.”
