Based on the latest brain research and proven classroom practices, How Your Child Learns Best tells parents not only how to help kids learn from schoolwork, but also how to capitalize on the way the brain learns in order to enhance and enrich a child's education-a necessity in today's "teach to the test" world. Filled with lots of practical strategies, How Your Child Learns Best is a godsend for parents who know that even the best teacher can't give students the personalized instruction that involved parents can. Neurologist and classroom teacher Dr. Judy Willis shows how parents can help their children increase academic focus and success, lower test-stress while increasing test scores, increase class participation, optimize their gifts, foster creativity, reconnect with the joy of learning, and more. Covering literacy, math, social studies, science, and beyond for preschool through upper elementary, How Your Child Learns Best reveals how to maximize your child's brain potential and offers something for every parent who wants the best for their child. "At last we parents now have a reference that will help guide us in assisting our children's growth and flowering. This book is what parents have been searching for and need now more than ever." -from the foreword by Goldie Hawn.

Judy Willis, MD, M. Ed (Santa Barbara) a board certified neurologist and middle school teacher, has combined her training in neuroscience and neuroimaging with her teaching education and years of classroom experience. She is an authority in the field of learning-centered brain research and strategies derived from this research for use by parents and educators. Her articles connecting neurology and education have been published in numerous education journals.
