“To see, hear, move, and imagine are all learned skills that must work together for a child to succeed happily in school.

In The Fantastic Elastic Brain, Betsy Schooley capitalizes on her twenty-five years of teaching school, her work with children in her “Brain Ways” practice, and her knowledge of brain plasticity to describe a variety of powerful programs and procedures that enhance our ability to sense, move, and think. This book is a great resource for parents, teachers, and anyone interested in the workings of our very flexible brain.”

The Fantastic Elastic Brain is a very readable compendium of different learning problems and their potential remedies. Every learning problem presents as a cluster of symptoms that need be identified and corrected. That, of course, is the crux of a difficult problem – finding the proper diagnosis; this task can be overwhelming for parent or teacher seeking answers for life-confounding learning difficulties.

The Fantastic Elastic Brain is a place to start finding answers. First, it is a wide-ranging compendium of the most prevalent learning problems, so it offers a good likelihood of identifying the problem – and it does so on a layman’s level, which is appropriate for the parent or teacher. Second, for any given problem, it offers a treatment or treatments that have been successful in the author’s experience. These treatments are briefly described and well documented to provide guidance for more extensive follow-up.

Between being confronted with a debilitating learning problem and finding a successful resolution there is vast body of information and data to be traversed – this is one of the better guidebooks available in any library.
