A Mind At A Time

Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: July 2002

Duration: 5 hours 4 minutes

Summary:

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.

    Bar none, the BEST book I've ever read about the mind, how the systems work together and the learning patterns that we can identify as strengths or weaknesses. I read this book initially to help my oldest daughter who has multiple LDs. It has helped my understanding of her MANY strengths and identify the "glitches" that need help. However,the book has also opened my mind (pun intended)to the strengths and weaknesses that each one of us posesses! Imagine finding a map that helps you understand your own mind and the way it works! I can't say enough about the value of Mel Levine's work. Check out www.allkindsofminds.org!
