Dr. Lyn Arnold is a globally renowned expert on learning and cognitive psychology with over 30 years of experience working with children. She has drawn on her award-winning research, and the latest international studies of how learning and thinking works and can be supported, to develop the Forever S.M.A.R.T Reflective Learning Program book series (2013 Red Gum Press) for parents, caregivers, and teachers to better help children 8 to 16 years old improve their learning skills and boost achievement. This unique series consists of 5 different books, each focused on a different key learning area.

"There is a growing body of knowledge and research on the 'science of learning' that is shared at conferences or in academic journals but most parents and teachers don't have access to this information," explains Dr. Arnold. "Yet they are the ones with the greatest opportunity to put this knowledge into action with children daily. That's why I developed this series of books in an easy to use format. The series enables anyone to start putting the latest research into practice to support children, regardless of what level the child is at, to learn better and achieve their potential without needing to 'be an expert' to help them."

The program series is comprised of 5 books that follow the S.M.A.R.T. acronym. Each book comes with exercises, tips & advice, and research information. The 5 stand alone modules in the program include:

S. Step Up for Success - outlining 6 foundation skills and strategies that support learning.
M. Mind Mastery - exploring the power of the mind and metacognitive thinking for higher achievement.
A. Achieving Alone with Assistance - which includes 7 ways to assist children to learn independently.
R. Reasoning and Reacting Responsibly - explores the mental and emotional strengths for success.
T. Turbo-charged Learning - explains how knowledge transfer can take achievement to new levels.

The series is available for purchase as individual books based on a child's specific need, level, or challenge. But in response to reader requests, the entire series is also available in one convenient volume that includes the Forever Learning Champions book. Print versions can be ordered on Amazon, and e-book versions can be ordered and downloaded on Dr. Arnold's website: foreversmartlearning.com.
