The Hocus Focus™ curriculum
is a student-centered, multidisciplinary arts-themed teaching approach that incorporates magic tricks into the learning process. It values a holistic philosophy essential to effective educational experiences that are generalizable for children with disabilities.
Each lesson is designed to provide opportunities for students to learn through modeling, coaching, and scaffolding while increasing the complexity of new tasks. Each of the eleven tricks in the curriculum allows students to build on previously learned knowledge. As the tricks become increasingly more difficult, it expands opportunities for creative expression and progress.
The content was developed in collaboration with experts in the fields of education and special education. The activities are fun, exciting, and engaging for students of all ages and levels.
By combining education with imagination, children will improve their abilities in planning, sequencing, organizing tasks and movements, fine motor dexterity, gross motor function, concentration/focus, memory skills, and much more.
