On a different note, Amazon has this book listed as frequently bought with Your Child's Strengths: Discover Them, Develop Them, and Use Them. These are the same book, one in hardcover, one in paperback. I have contacted Amazon several times to get them to clear up the confusion on the listing but have not yet seen results. I purchased both books at their recommendation and want to help others avoid the same duplication.
Her use of Dr. Gardner's Multiple Intelligences and Dr. Levine's Neurodevelopmental Constructs provide valid guidelines for understanding how children learn. She so correctly points out that we each learn on different levels and at different rates. Her strengths initiative model is a powerful and effective method for identifying innate (activity) strengths, relationship strengths and learning strengths. Identifying how they learn best offers a pathway to enhancing their education. Her vivid writing style makes this an enjoyable yet informative read. If you are truly interested in your child's strengths and learning more about how your child learns, this book is a must for every parent!!
