This is a great way to provide understandable explanations to kids about how the brain works and why the interventions are going to be effective.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I would want to use this in all my assessments and think it is really helpful and practical to demystify the assessment process and engage students.
Liz Angoff’s Brain Building books are wonderful tools to help children and adolescents understand the results of their cognitive and neuropsychological test results, and the collaborative process through which she involves children throughout an assessment is state-of-the-art!
Undoubtedly, this approach also helps parents understand and be more empathic to their children.
