Stories of Unlocking Learning Potential
These stories have been a part of Maggie Dail for several years. Rounding the Bases - Chris Learns to Read was published in print in 2010 as a chapter book for struggling readers and their parents. It tells the story of a boy named Chris who loved baseball but struggled in learning to read. His story illustrates how many ICAN neurodevelopmentalists work with their clients. Jumping the Hurdles, Jessi Learns Math is especially for families who have children who struggle with math. Finally, Hitting the High Notes - Bobby Lee Organizes His Life's Song is primarily for families who face challenges with follow through - these individuals do not lack abilities and dreams - but something is keeping them from moving the dream to fulfillment. Finding the underlying missing pieces in development is the answer for all of these. Keep in mind that these challenges do not come in isolation, but Dail used specific profiles in her characters. These latter two stories represent how Maggie works with her clients today.
