"Fidgeting to stay focused...Imagine that! Sounds counterintuitive, but that is just what Dr. Rotz and Coach Sarah Wright are recommending in their new book, Fidget to Focus. Advocating repetitive sensory-motor activities as a fundamental strategy for improving attention and other cognitive abilities, they present a unique and fun way to turn outer chaos to calm focus."
