Jane Healy

Teacher and Educational Psychologist

Jane Healy is a teacher and educational psychologist who has worked with all ages from pre-school to graduate school. Her major research interest has been in finding practical applications of current brain research for teachers and parents. A graduate of Smith College, she holds a M.A. from John Carroll University, a Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University, and post-doctoral work in developmental neuropsychology. She has served on the faculty of Cleveland State University. Her many years of experience include: parent, classroom teacher, reading/learning specialist, elementary administrator, and clinician. She is recognized internationally as author, lecturer, and consultant. She has received international media coverage, including Nightline, Good Morning America, the Today Show, CNN and NPR, for her ideas about the impact of technology, media and culture on children's brain development and learning.

Jane’s award-winning books include: Your Child's Growing Mind: A Guide to Learning and Brain Development from Birth to Adolescence; Endangered Minds: Why Children Don't Think and What We Can Do About It, and Failure to Connect: How Computers Affect Our Children’s Minds--and What We Can Do About It. Her new book, Different Learners, distills decades of clinical and personal experience to help parents and teachers understand learning differences and create optimal learning environments for all youngsters.

Although Jane has received many honors, including being twice named the "Educator of the Year" by Delta Kappa Gamma, she claims that she and her husband have learned most of what they know from the process of raising three sons (and now from 6 grandchildren!)
