I just returned from hearing JoAnn Deak speak about the brain. Funny, thoughtful, and very bright, she provided so much good information about differences in girls and boys. Brain-based research continues to find its way into the world of education and the study of child development, and it is all so helpful.
By the way, JoAnn's book You're Fantastic Elastic Brain has won two awards: the Mom's Choice Award and the Nautilus Award.
Make sure you listen to her the next time you see her name listed in a conference program, or better yet, get her to speak at your school.
