Review:

"Given current inclusive practices and our emphasis on reaching all students, Sousa arms us with current brain research to support the kinds of instruction and accommodations that we need to provide students in schools today."

(Patrice W. Hallock, Assistant Professor of Education 2006-06-09)

"Presents a highly readable overview of a variety of special needs accompanied by practical information about how to address those needs. Makes the relationship between the special need and the brain clear and understandable for the lay reader." (Lois A. Fisch, Associate Professor, Director of Education and Director of the Institute for Excellence in Education 2006-06-09)

"A well-written, practical guide for parents and practitioners working with children with additional needs, providing a comprehensive overview of the field and rooted in a desire to facilitate effective support and to enable children to fulfill their potential." (SEN Magazine, United Kingdom 2008-06-12)
