With so much to do and so little learning time in a school year—fitting in downtime is easier said than done. That’s unfortunate, because research shows that time off-task is important for proper brain function and health.
Auditory processing disorders can be traced to specific regions of the brain, especially regions of the brainstem. Find out how targeted auditory processing disorder interventions result in better listening skills and improved brainstem response to speech.
Your most struggling student just isn’t listening – again. But could there be more to it? Auditory processing disorders can look a lot like inattention, and it’s not easy to tell the difference. Why is it so hard to figure out what’s going on?
Norman Doidge, M.D., discusses why the concept of brain plasticity—the brain’s ability to grow and change in structure and function in response to experience—is “the most important change in our understanding of the brain in 400 years.”
Find out how children around the world are rewiring their brains to overcome 'insurmountable' language and reading problems.
New research centering on the electrical brain signals picked up by EEG is clarifying the relationship between auditory processing and language learning.
How early does environment begin to shape children into successful students or underachieving students? The answer has to do, in part, with how early babies start acquiring the skills needed to learn to read.
