Different minds learn differently. That's an issue for many children, because most schools still cling to a one-size-fits-all education philosophy. As a result, children struggle because their learning patterns don't fit the schools they are in. Learning begins in schools, but it doesn't end there. Frustrating a child's desire to learn will have lifelong repercussions.

In A Mind at a Time, Dr. Mel Levine shows parents how to identify these individual learning patterns. He explains how parents and teachers can nurture a child's strengths and deal effectively with weaknesses. This type of teaching produces satisfaction and achievement for all students.

There are eight fundamental systems of learning that draw on a variety of neurodevelopmental capacities. Some students are strong in certain areas and some are strong in others, but no one is equally capable in all eight. Drawing from actual case studies, Dr. Levine shows how parents and children can identify their strengths and weaknesses to determine their individual ways of learning.

We must pay attention to individual learning patterns, to individual minds so that we can maximize children's performance in school and in life. In A Mind at a Time, Dr. Levine shows us how.

    " Teachers and parents cannot try to teach kids in the same way. Every child has their own strengths and weaknesses..and the book breaks down the various intelligences into different categories. In order to reach every child, a teacher should know the different categories and be able to recognize if their students are strong or weak in each. "

    " Good social skills information and learning styles. Megan Scatena went to a school district sponsored seminar by the author of this book and recommended the book to me. Additionally, Jason's school sponsors talks by the author. I am two chapters into the book and finding it very interesting! It talks about the different ways in which students and children process information and where different breakdowns may occur. It also presents quite a bit of information on social skill issues. "
