Description

Revealing Minds is a hands-on guide for assessing learning problems in school-aged students, based on the philosophy of All Kinds of Minds, the cutting-edge institute co-founded by renowned pediatrician and author Mel Levine. Written by psychologist Craig Pohlman, the book presents a unique approach that stresses the importance of identifying a student's assets and uncovering breakdown points that lead to problems in school. It is filled with real-life examples, definitions of key terms, diagrams, and sample assessment tasks.
