This book offers a look into an option for students with learning disabilities that is unlike any other. Rather than accommodating, or "working around," their learning disabilities (by getting extra help, extra time, and having scribes, etc.), which is what's done in most schools, these students are rewiring their brains so that they don't need that extra help. Accommodations can work while students are in school, but what happens after they graduate? The approach described in Brain School makes much more sense, and it's surprising to learn that what appears to be a cutting-edge program is actually more than 30 years old. Anyone who has learning difficulties, or knows someone with them, should read this book. The stories in it are inspirational!

Howard Eaton gave me a perspective about learning difficulties and how they can be addressed. Good and interesting read.

Most of this book contains nothing but pseudoscience.
