In order to create a better learning brain, students must be organized, adaptive, passionate, and secure about learning. Research and follow-up studies of these traits with theoretical knowledge, may suggest why multiple intelligence, child development theory, learning styles, and cognitive development should be included in every teacher's playbook.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As a professional in the field of psychiatry, I am very pleased to see that an intelligent book on the subject of nurturing learning brains is available to both parents and teachers. The book, Brain Smart - a Better Learning Brain by Dr. David Sortino is a collection of his blog articles on the subject of how to allow one's child, whether a student or family member, to develop a successful learning brain. Most importantly, each article is well supported by research, field studies, and associates' publications. Most conveniently, the book's articles are arranged into age appropriate sections so that if one has a young teen, he may simply turn to the section dealing with that age group and read relevant information. I highly recommend this book, whether one is a professional in the field of psychology, a teacher, or a parent. His writing is based on personal experience in his experiences as a professional in the fields of educational psychology, special education, and neurofeedback work. Finally, we have a practical, fascinating guide to dealing with current issues in child-rearing and education, especially in regard to creating a successful learning brain for the child. -- Victoria L. Dunckley, Integrative Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatry Centre for Life, West Los Angeles
A Guide to How Your Child Learns: Understanding the Brain from Infancy to Young Adulthood is a very accessible guide for parents that covers the childhood landscape from a brain-based perspective. -- Sigfried Othemer, author of "ADD - The 20-Hour Solution"
Dr. David Sortino's book: BRAIN SMART- A Guide To How Your Child Learns: UnderstandingThe Brain From Infancy To Adulthood is a must reader for parents, grand-parents, teachers & paraprofessionals interested in how we learn. He presents up-to-date research on controversial issues affecting student learning at all levels. -- Dagmar Hoheneck-Smith, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist
Parents and teachers share two great goals: to help children become smart, and to help them become good. Dr. David Sortino's A Guide to How Your Child Learns gives us practical, brain-based ways to do both. As a developmental psychologist, I especially appreciated his emphasis on fostering moral growth in childhood and adolescence, the detrimental effects of too much screen time, and alternatives to drugs in treating behavior problems. You may find yourself, as I did, sharing and discussing this book's important research findings and recommendations with your grown children and grandchildren. This is knowledge that can improve how we interact, use our time, handle stress, problem-solve, and build a better brain-at any stage of human development -- Thomas Lickona, author of "Raising Good Children"
