"Based on cutting-edge brain research and the pioneering work being done at the All Kinds of Minds nonprofit organization, this groundbreaking book offers a dynamic approach to closing the ever-widening achievement gap in schools. Schools for All Kinds of Minds shows how educators at all levels can develop expertise in 'learning variation' -- understanding how different kind of minds learn -- and demonstrates how to apply this knowledge to raise achievement for all. This focus -- which recognizes kids' learning strengths, not just deficits -- can lead to school success even for struggling students."
