Product description


"A major strength of the third edition of How the Special Needs Brain Learns is that it clearly addresses all major areas of learning in which students with disabilities experience problems. The author has done an excellent job in balancing what we know about the brain and how this can be applied in the classroom. It bridges the field of neuroscience and education well!" -- Beverly Kling, Ed.D., Professor "How the Special Needs Brain Learns, Third Edition provides key biological and neurological information for issues that I think many teachers attribute purely to attitude and will. By providing the specific neurological processes behind learning difficulties, Dr. Sousa gives teachers and teacher candidates a useful resource to understand and respond to challenges experienced by students with learning difficulties and special educational needs." -- Gina Garner, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Education, Learning Disabilities Program Director "Understanding brain development is of critical importance to the field of education. Of all the books I have used, those written by David Sousa have been the most readable and understandable. The strategies included in this new edition of How the Special Needs Brain Learns can be easily carried out in the classroom. I think I have all that he has written regarding the brain." -- Sharon Carter, Associate Professor "Understanding how individuals learn...or why they may fail to learn...is an integral part of what makes teachers effective with students who have special learning needs as well as with those who don't. Dr. Sousa's text provides an easy-to-read explanation of both how the brain functions and how that functioning impacts the learning process. But it doesn't stop there. Each chapter offers practical information, suggestions, or strategies that can be used to help struggling students learn." -- Dr. Nancy G. Burton, Associate Professor of Education-SPED "How the Special Needs Brain Learns makes a distinct contribution to the field. It provides knowledge of the neurological basis of learning without inundating the reader with biological terminology. The various categories of disabilities are defined and described in terms that teachers can understand. But Dr. Sousa does not leave the reader there. He arms the reader with strategies to address various disabilities and a plethora of ways to support their learning and emotional needs. The teacher-friendliness of this book makes it stand out in its field." -- Francine Del Vecchio, Ed.D., Associate Professor, Division of Education
