Have you ever read The Brain that Changes itself by Norman Doidge? This is an amazing book that I read couple years ago that impressed me and opened me to several facts including Brain plasticity, Arrow Smith School, Posit Science software etc.
However, the most important thing about Brain plasticity is it’s impact on children with learning disability. There is a new book out Brain School: Stories of children with learning disabilities and attention disorders who changed their lives by improving their cognitive functioning.
Here is a brief book review or introduction to this book. If you are working with children or have a child that might benefit from cognitive training, this book and the review seems like a good start.
I aim to add it to my collection and read it soon. When I read, I will let you know more details.
