About MaryEllen Jirak

I am a highly acclaimed teacher, award winning author, educated in the science and psychology of human behavior. I hold a BA in Elementary Education and an MS in Special Education. Being an ADD creative and having raised one gives me a unique perspective. I share proven techniques that can assist you to achieve amazing high-impact results in your effectiveness as a parent, teacher, or ADD creative to create happier homes, classrooms, and lives using the fewest steps in the shortest amount of time.

As a long-term educator I believe in the natural genius of all children. Each child comes into the world with unique abilities. Properly nourished, these abilities can contribute to the betterment of our world. Our greatest challenge as parents and teachers is to uncover these gifts so they may be honored and nurtured. Our present belief systems both educational and societal block us from bringing out each child’s potential.

The brain’s, biology, and learning styles of the children I call creative risk takers are remarkably different. Research leading to greater understanding of the amazingly plastic brain is assisting us to understand that children considered “learning or behaviorally disabled” are really “schooling and nutritionally disabled.” Through an understanding and appreciation of their unique strengths and styles of learning and treating their biological and neurological differences we help students discover how they best learn and powerfully impact their chances for success.
