In this episode, we explore the fascinating topic of cognitive load and how it affects your child’s brain power. Discover the delicate balance between maximising cognitive capacity and avoiding overload. I’ll also share valuable insights on supporting optimal learning, especially when it comes to reading and following recipes.

  • Give time for reviewing previous learning, 
  • Using routines and hooks to add new learning in small chunks,
