When All Kinds of Minda offered individual assessments of children with learning differences, we brought our son for an evaluation. The insights we gained from this experience were vastly superior to what we had received from our own school district -- which is usually ranked #1 or #2 in our state. Our son's academic performance improved dramatically (e.g. he went from failing every spelling test to getting 100% on each for the rest of the year). Now that he is older, he is able to effectively self-advocate, based on what he learned. The emails, etc. we continue receive have been doses of reinforcement in these years since we visited. Thanks!

All Kinds of Minds systematically dismantles the disease model we currently have for our schools and our students. All Kinds of Minds training confirms the role of teachers as facilitators of learning, not rigid gatekeepers of answers. A healthier future is on the rise as All Kinds of Minds continues this work.

The experience of the All Kinds of Minds training was life changing for our school community. Our teachers are becoming practitioners in the classroom, guided by the analytical information provided by All Kinds of Minds. This organization supports teachers in their understanding of the many facets of learning as well as the many facets of their learners. It places great importance on the strengths and affinities of students, which has resulted in an expansion of our list of extracurricular activities. All Kinds of Minds plays a key role in what we do every day as a school community.

I have so appreciated All Kinds of Minds. I became acquainted with them last year when I attended a seminar introducing their model. It has really helped me to understand my students better. Recently, this past summer, I have enjoyed their blogs. They have posted on attention, writing, handwriting, memory, congnition and a host of topics that are relevant to me in my field. I looked forward to getting each blog post because I knew that it would be succinct, informative and practical. I even had a chance to forward the blog links to a few parents and fellow colleagues who are able to put some of the research-based suggestions into practice. Thank you "All Kinds of Minds" for keeping me updated in my field in a relevant and accessible way!

Our daughter has a Dandy Walker variant. This means that part of her brain did not fully develop. Her teachers had written her off as "incapable of learning" and they told us that we were just comparing her to her brother. A neighbor saw Dr. Levine on TV so we made an appointment at the Student Success Center in Raleigh. We are eternally grateful for what they did for all of us. In the demystification process they gave us the keys to how are daughter is wired and taught her to be her own advocate. She graduated from high school with a 3.3 and is a very happy college student now!

My oldest son started having difficulties in school. The principal suggested that I read his books. I read his books and started advocating for my son. He has gone from total frustration at trying anything academic to becoming an honor student. (5 years). My second son is bright and charming. The school denied he had any challenges. I emailed All Kinds of Minds and with one phrase from them, I caught the schools attention and now my second son once again enjoys school.

I received All Kinds of Minds training in 2008. As an educator, I am able to help all of my students - not just the ones that are advanced or struggling. This program has been instrumental in helping me to strengthen my teaching skills and better serve all of my students. One student in particular was having trouble in class, and we couldn't seem to find anything to help her, but once I took the All Kinds of Minds course, I was able to give her strategies to address each component of her learning. I never realized how many components actually went into learning! This student was able to be taken out of the "pull-out" programs she had been in because her scores were improving. I love All Kinds of Minds and so do the parents of my students who I've implemented the program with!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my classroom. My students are able to work using the strategies that best suit them, yet all of them learn the same content. This is great for differentiating instruction!

As a parent of a dyslexic child, the information found in this web site, the educational opportunities presented by Mel Levine, that I attended in person, the books that have been written by Mel, have provided an invaluable resource, not only to me and my daughter, but to the teachers with whom she interacts and the state of RI, when his in-person seminar was held. He and this web site are a gem.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the increased knowledge and understanding of how the dyslexic mind works, and the opportunities to have education-specific tools for each child.

In 2008 Greenwood School brought the AKOM (Schools Attuned) training to our teachers. It was exciting to see our teachers enthused about accommodating their students learning styles by applying different teaching styles. Teachers work together to assess students and share their information. Now we are also having our students (grades 6-12) assess their own learing style and advocate for their accommodations. Teachers consistantly use their placemats when writing students' annual goals and objectives, developing classroom lessons, quizzes, and tests, and conducting parent conferences. The now have a common language to describe each child's learning strengths and weaknesses. We have continued training and will be incorporating the Schools Attuned constructs into our Rubicon curriculum mapping. Overall, this has been a win-win for our teachers and students. We are proud to be an AKOM School of Distinction. Jody Sealy, Admissions Coordinator Greenwood School, Jacksonville, FL A different way of teaching. A better way of leaning.

As a special education teacher, much of my training was to focus on the difficulties my students experienced. The All Kinds of Minds training gave me a new perspective, by reminding me that everyone is a mixture of strengths and weaknesses, and that the key is to identify and work with all aspects of a students developmental profile. All Kinds of Minds did not just stop with the change of mentality, but provided clear and specific methodology to achieve this goal. I learned to better understand my students, and how to better intervene in order to help them achieve their potential. In addition I served as a mentor to general education teachers, and they found these ideas and tools extremely helpful in better addressing the needs of all the students in their classes, with completely different profiles.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am better able to understand and address the needs of my students (and my own children!) I also see how other teachers who are provided with this training become more effective teachers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the great training and materials provided.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, knowledgeable, and committed to their goal.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

train all the teachers in American and make school more productive for millions of students!
