My Brain Doesn't Work Like That!" by Dr. Jane Bluestein

Dr. Jane Bluestein will visit The Janus School, 205 Lefever Road, Mount Joy, to present "My Brain Doesn't Work Like That!" on Tuesday, Aug. 21, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The informative lecture will focus on working with students with learning disabilities.

The program will explore a number of ways individuals learn.

Ideas for teachers and parents, especially those working with nontraditional learners, will be presented and discussed.

Bluestein has worked with thousands of educators, counselors, health care professionals, parents, child care workers, and other community members worldwide. She has appeared internationally as a speaker and talk-show guest, and she is an award-winning author. Formerly a classroom teacher in inner-city Pittsburgh, a crisis-intervention counselor, a teacher training program coordinator, and a volunteer with high-risk teenagers at a local day treatment program, Bluestein currently heads a consulting and resource firm in Albuquerque, N.M.
