Expert in gifted children Bernadette Tynan is making it her mission to prove that brain training really works by showing how she can go into any school and spot a seemingly ordinary child whose gifts are being missed. In Leeds, will she pick 10 year old Nicholas who reveals entrepreneurial ability during her challenges but whose struggles with literacy and approach to learning have left him bottom of the class? Or could it be quietly focused Ben, who has a passion for gardening, an ability that lies beyond the school gates? The child she eventually picks in this school has a tendency toward being a hands-on or ‘kinaesthetic’ learner. This is the way in which a lot of people like to learn but they may not always realise this and don’t realise and learn how to turn it to their advantage. This episode is packed with take home information about how to spot children’s individual gifts and work with their strengths to attack problem areas, using really fun and easy activities that any one can do…. Diving for letters in a swimming pool, using household objects to learn how to structure a story… as well as guiding them to pull off a brilliant challenge… Dad’s final assessment of his son’s brain training journey? ‘If every kid had just a little bit of this, think how far they could go.’

Dr. Sarah Domoff is an Assistant Professor in Clinical Psychology at Central Michigan University. Her research examines children's use of media and mobile devices (e.g., Tablets and Smartphones). She is interested in understanding how new media use may impact children's health and development. Dr. Domoff will be presenting two of her more recent studies. The first will present the development of a new measure to assess problematic (i.e., "addictive") media use in children. The second study will describe the use of audio-recording technology to characterize parent-child interactions around media use in the home.
