About the Author

My teaching career in South Africa and England has varied over a span of 45 years. Many writers and teachers inspired me. Steven Covey, Louise Hay, Werner Erhard and Dr Maria Montessori were particularly influential in my personal growth and in presenting workshops for adults. The jewel in my career, however, was the privilege of working with children who presented gifted behaviour as well as those who experienced learning difficulties (in many cases, children with both). I encountered the work of Paul Torrance on creativity and giftedness. Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment program provided thinking skills. The parents could attend evening workshops where I showed them how to "leave the teaching to the teacher," and how to enjoy the learning process with their children. "Let's Play Learning" is about those workshops.

Reviews

"Clear-eyed and full of sense" -- Stuart Heritage: The Guardian "This delightful book is addressed to parents to help them nurture the learning process in harmony with the demands of school while taking into account the particular characteristics of the individual child in his family." -- Caroline Gluckman: Member Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists "What a relief to rescue education from its serious edge! You are holding in your hands humorous and compassionate guidance from a master teacher who gets the best out of people, and especially children." -- Kathy Wolstenholme: Founder of the Nia Technique in South Africa. Presenter and Author of "Juice." "Helena is an author in touch with children, their imagination and sense of fun and who nurtures a spirit of discovery. Fortunately, as a grandmother, I get a second chance to play with these ideas with my grandchildren." -- Jean Ward. BA (Hons) Educational Psychology. KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
