Dear Dr. Sanchez,

For the past nineteen years, I have worked with intellectually gifted students.  Gifted education constantly looks to the latest theories on learning and the thinking process to discover ways to challenge very capable students. As this world becomes increasingly dependent on technology, skills for understanding ourselves and those around us and ways to improve communication will be necessary to maintain balance. In the array of information and possibilities offered, I have found Spectrum Development to be the single most powerful tool available for these purposes.

Ironically, while we pursue the latest in computers, we tend to forget the original and most complex model � the human brain. Spectrum Development removes the technical jargon and develops awareness of why we think and act the way we do. Equally important to the learning is the environment Spectrum Development creates. Using bright colors and activities that engage the participants kinesthetically, the basic theories on temperament can be easily grasped by children and adults.

My 8th grade literature class focuses on literature of the 1900�s. One of my reoccurring themes is studying the role of the family and how it changes during the century. At the end of WWII, our society became mobile and the �family� as was known, became obsolete. In a world that often appears grim and negative, Spectrum Development offers tools for communication that not only encourage acceptance and understanding of differences but embraces these differences to enrich our lives.

In the 1921 movie, The Jazz Singer, a mother begs a father not to beat their son for misbehaving by arguing, �he thinks differently than we do.�  So it is with today�s children. They think differently than today�s adults, but the brain and its temperaments have not changed. Spectrum Development opens a common door for communication. It is fun. It is energizing. It holds astounding potential for a society needing to connect again at the personal level. It can work in schools, homes, and businesses, and provide a common language for all to share.
