Neuroplasticity – Rewiring The Brain with Dr. Jan Bedell
Neuroplasticity, hmm? Do we really have to use such an unfamiliar word? Yes, to describe the amazing gift that God has given us we can start with a big word and break it down. It really is quite simple – “neuro” is having to do with the brain and “plasticity” is the ability to change. Our brains are changing all the time. This is really good news when you have a struggling learner or a child with a label like dyslexia, ADD, ADHD or autism. The key is knowing how to fuel the brain with the right kind of stimulation so it builds new pathways. From these new pathways, the brain can receive, organize, process and store information well enough to bring it out and use it in everyday life. With the right kind of stimulation, your brain can take little developmental steps to achieve giant strides in academics and overall function. That is what happens when you use the products and services of Little Giant Steps.
In this episode, you will hear the experience of a teacher that had taught first grade for 17 years before using The NeuroDevelopmental Approach in her classroom in year 18. It made a huge difference for her students and can make a difference for you and your family as well. Applying just a little information can make all the difference in your child’s future. We shouldn’t leave out the adults either! It is never too late to change the brain. Two ladies in their 50’s, one a reading tutor and the other a Montessori teacher who had always struggled with reading comprehension, raised their reading comprehension score by 3 ½ years in only four months’ time. And guess what? They didn’t do any specific reading program. All it took was organization and specific stimulation to the brain and their abilities radically changed.
