In 1990 Dr. Pickering—a dear friend and colleague of mine—became the Executive Director of the Shelton School and Evaluation Center in Dallas, TX. At that time, the school had an enrollment of 170 children. Dr. Pickering directed the school for 20 years, and in 2010, when the school was serving 700 children, she transitioned to the Shelton Outreach Department with a focus on the School’s Montessori Applied to Children At Risk (MACAR) teacher-training program. Shelton now has an enrollment of over 900 children and is the largest school in the world for children with dyslexia and other learning differences.

Montessori Applied to Children at Risk
Children with learning differences have always held a special place in my heart. It is partly what makes Dr. Joyce Pickering's new book Montessori Strategies forChildren with Learning Differences so special. I highly recommend this book to all educators and parents who want to learn more about Montessori education and working with children who learn differently.
