A Mind At A Time

How Every Child Can Succeed


'Different minds learn differently' writes Dr Mel Levine, one of the best-known education experts and paediatricians in America today. And that's a problem for many children, because most schools still cling to a one-size-fits-all education philosophy.

In A MIND AT A TIME, Dr Levine shows parents and others who care for children how to identify these individual learning patterns. He explains how parents and teachers can encourage a child's strengths and bypass the child's weaknesses. This type of teaching produces satisfaction and achievement instead of frustration and failure. Different brains are differently wired with eight fundamental systems of learning that draw on a variety of neurodevelopmental capacities. Certain students are strong in certain areas and some are strong in others, but no one is equally capable in all eight.

Learning begins at school, but it doesn't end there. Frustrating a child's desire to learn will have lifelong repercussions. We must begin to pay more attention to individual learning styles, to individual minds, urges Dr Levine, so that we can maximise our children's learning potential. A MIND AT A TIME shows us how.
