Meet Jane M. Healy, PhD

Hi I'm Dr Jane Healy, an educational psychologist, a mother, a grandmother and a long time educator. My interest has always been in how kid's brains learn and develop and I've written 5 books on this subject for parents and teachers. I'm particularly interested in those different learners, which is the title of one of my books, who either are not fitting in because maybe their a little smarter or faster than everybody else or maybe they have some difficulty or maybe they have all of those things. And my advice for parents is take time, sit back, enjoy that child, that wonderful process of human brain development which is going on right in front of your eyes. And take time to laugh. Have fun together. That's really the best thing for you and your child. I like to have fun at home in the Rocky Mountains doing lots of sports and being in nature. Actively enjoying nature. Which we also know by the way is very good for our brains.
