Jane Healy, Ph.D. – United States

“Gloria DeGaetano has developed an outstanding program that truly helps parents successfully overcome the difficult challenges of raising children in our complex world.”

Jane Healy is a teacher, author, and popular lecturer 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 master’s degree in reading from John Carroll University, a Ph.D. in educational psychology from Case Western Reserve University, and post-doctoral work in developmental neuropsychology. She has served on the faculty of Cleveland State University.

Jane’s many years of experience as a parent, classroom teacher, reading/learning specialist, and elementary administrator have helped her become an internationally recognized author, lecturer, and consultant. She has received international media coverage for her ideas about the impact of technology, media, and culture on children’s brain development.

Jane’s award-winning books include:

  • Different Learners: Identifying, Preventing, and Treating Your Child’s Learning Problems
  • 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
  • Failure to Connect: How Computers Affect Our Children’s Minds—and What We Can Do About It

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.
