The checklist screens for abnormalities in achievement concern, creative initiative, independence, alertness, attendance, comprehension, attention span, self-confidence, self-discipline, emotional control, relationships with peers and relationships with school staff.

Super Strokes

Super strokes are statements and actions that tend to develop, maintain or enhance the child’s experiencing of self worth, social impact, self-direction, or self-confidence.

Taylor Math Grids

These grids are ideal for assisting any student who has visual perceptual, eye-hand or visual organizational difficulties resulting in trouble keeping columns of numbers vertical when doing math seat work or homework. Simply run off several pages and offer these grids in place of ordinary notebook paper. The student puts one digit in each square. The vertical pull of the Taylor Math Grids aids further in helping the student keep math columns straight. These grids are especially helpful with division and multiplication, which require the student to write digits diagonally across the paper, then add them up vertically.
