About the Author
Researching all available information about how children learn and then creating and serving up multisensory games and activities for her son, she saw her son, and his gifted brother, beginning to learn at an accelerated rate.
Fun, reinforcing activities (like a party after learning difficult skills) made sure they were ready to try something new the next time.
Jeanne also grasped that many students struggle with math (as she had when she was growing up) and now realized how much easier it would have been for her to learn using a multisensory approach.
Based on years of personal experience, she operates from two very basic principles: (1) if it's not fun, they're going to fight doing it, and (2) the more you know about something, the more interesting it becomes.
