A fourth Technique has been added to Amazon and Smashwords: Conquer Anxiety and Bed-wetting. This technique is in the form of a short visualisation story called The Magic Garden designed for young students aged 7 to 12 to ease anxiety and tensions associated with school work, especially exams.
But tackling the young student's anxieties had secondary gains, the most important of which was curing bed-wetting, 99% of which is anxiety based. It also combats nightmares and even sleepwalking.
The Garden and it's 'big brother' The Study Relaxer can be downloaded for burning to a DVD on the Edinburgh Techniques website: www.edinburghtechniques.co.uk. The Teacher Relaxer, based on the Study Relaxer was added to the site in 2011.
A 5th Conqueror Compilation eBook is currently being prepared for Amazon and Smashwords

In less than a month Conquer Spelling has risen to No.11 in Amazon's Education best sellers list. It has since been joined on Amazon by Conquer Reading Out Loud and should see a third eBook in the Conquer series this week - Conquer Times Tables.
They are all published by North Highland and are shortened versions of the existing Edinburgh Techniques. They are also much cheaper. Not all of the Ed Tech Books will be published by North Highland but they can be bought from the Ed Tech's website e.g the Edinburgh Teaching Clock.
North Highland also has their eBooks on Smashwords and other eBook websites.
I'll keep you posted as the weeks roll on, but safe to say this is a good start.

I was asked last week about a Teaching Clock for an 8 year old and was delighted to point them in the direction of my very own Edinburgh Teaching Clock: http://edinburghtechniques.co.uk/
The Clock Face, plus the 10 East Steps are simplicity itself and can be downloaded from our website. The Face is attached to a normal Kitchen Clock and the young student learns the basics within 15 minutes and completely within 3 or 4 days at which point you can remove the Teaching Face from your clock.
Needless to say the aforementioned 8 year old can now tell the time. That's Wholebrain Learning for you.
I see there is more fear and alarm about the number of Primary Students entering High School with poor Reading Skills and often poor Basic Skills generally.
The current crop of CONQUER eBooks being published by North Highland Press in Amazon, Smashwords and other eBook sites cover these Basic Skills. Conquer Reading Out Loud allows students to lose the fear of being asked to read out in class by teaching them how to read.
Like all of the Conquer Techniques it's simplicity itself and is based on how we learned to speak. The reason deaf people can't speak properly is because they never get the chance to hear themselves read properly. Reading involves matching sounds to symbols (words). The brain lays down the pattern of how words/part of words sound but until the reader hears himself read properly patterns are not laid down.
The eBook explains it all simply and shows you how.
