  • Genes or environment-what matters most now?
  • The four types of poverty
  • How poverty changes the brain
  • Which factors are reversible, and which are not?
  • What does the research tell us about poverty?
  • The single greatest problem (and opportunity)
  • The 5 most likely brain disorders are...(do you know?)
  • What to expect from kids from poverty

  • Part Two - Enriching the Brain: The 5-Part Success Plan
    Poverty may never change, but the brain can change. Here we explore what principles and strategies have shown remarkable success over the years. We focus on what matters most and what you can do for little or no money. This is the practical follow-up to Part One. It also works well for those students not from poverty.
