Drawing upon the Visual & Spatial Enhancement curriculum, a unique and effective programme of Visual Cognitive development and training, the trainer shows how you can guide your child to master the art of solving challenging math visual questions through the use of his innovative strategies.

This invaluable learning programme is a compilation of genuine examination visual questions sieved from various school examination papers, worthwhile of the students’ time. The questions are organised into 8 main Visual strategies. It provides a comprehensive exposure to the different types of challenging visual questions, enabling parents to help their child:
