I’m excited to share something really cool that changed how I see ADHD and how our brains work, especially the creative side! Let’s chat about “The Body Keeps the Score” by Bessel van der Kolk. It’s not just a book about ADHD; it’s like a map guiding us through how our brains handle tough stuff and how this connects to ADHD and our right-brain way of thinking.
Not all children learn the same way. Our left-brain dominant kids are comfortable in the world of language. Our right-brain dominant kids thrive in the world of images. For these students, no seeing means no thinking. No thinking means no learning. Visual art training helps them develop the visual skills that are essential to their learning.
