Build Your Brain!

Talking to children about their learning differences is tricky. The Brain Building Book was built to help!

For Parents

As part of our assessment, your child and I will create a book to document what we discover about their brain and how they learn. For younger students, we use The Brain Building Book. For older students, we use Brain Building 101. You can see sample pages from each below.

This book is a concrete tool you can bring home to continue the conversation and help them advocate for what they need over time!

Using this book as a guide, your child will learn basic neuroanatomy, explore a growth-mindset metaphor for how brains change over time, and identify strategies to help with learning.  We will also identify specific terms to help them understand their learning differences in an empowering and positive way.  

For Practitioners

The Brain Building Book will be available to practitioners for preorder through Kickstarter beginning January 26th! Click below to be notified and receive access to additional child-feedback resources.

The Kickstarter campaign will tell us if there is enough interest in a tool like this to make it possible to print at scale, and make it accessible and affordable to anyone who wants to use it. If we reach our goal, the book will be printed! If we do not reach our goal, the book will not be printed and everyone will simply get their money back.

Please help us make this book a reality by spreading the word! Share this page with others who may find it helpful, on Facebook, Twitter, or any platform of your choice. Let’s build a book!
