The miniLUK Brain Training series is similar to the bambinoLUK, but it is designed for older children. Its controller board has twelve numbered tiles in a high-quality plastic case with a transparent lid. When children finish each exercise, they can check to see if the unique symmetric pattern on the back of the controller matches the one on the page. All training begins easy but steadily climbs from basic to more advanced, then tricky, which is what this age group is looking for.
The miniLUK books feature complex brain challenges throughout the workbooks. MiniLUK focuses on visual perception, higher-order thinking skills, spatial relationships, memorization, concentration, visual perception, logical thinking, linguistic skills, and basic arithmetic. It is produced by a secular company, so some pages may not be suitable for your children.
Complete 5-6 new challenges a week in order to finish during a school year.

”This is really, really good... It is like a bit of extra OT in the home setting that is independent for the child.”
