Neuroscience Research

New neurological studies are showing that our knowledge of how the human brain functions and learns could be the key to more effective teaching of children with learning disabilities.

Brain research is proving to be a promising factor in helping improve the lives of these children by helping us to better understand dyslexia and other disorders, distinguishing between students with ADHD, cognitive impairments, and limited language exposure, and showing cognitive learning impairments in a child before he exhibits them through behavior.

Three schools around the United States are now basing how they teach off of this neurological research, and studies are being conducted to show their effectiveness. Hopefully, if all goes well, scientists will eventually be able to use their research and connect with even more educators and show them how educational policies and practices could be guided by our knowledge of the human brain.
