"Lecture Offers Tips on Helping Children to Remember" published a great article last week ("Lecture offers tips on helping children to remember," March 3, 2011) about Dr. Yellin's recent presentation to the Upper Saddle River Parent Education Support Group in Upper Saddle River, N.J.

"I once had a father tell me he thought his son just needed to try harder because he wasn’t doing well in school," Yellin said. "So, I told him to take off his glasses and read a sign on the wall. He took off his glasses and said, ‘I can’t read the sign.’ I responded to him, ‘Well, try harder.’
"This is what’s it’s like when children have memory issues. Trying harder is not the issue," he said to a smiling audience.
Thanks to Ann Marie Kennedy and everyone in Upper Saddle River for inviting Dr. Yellin to speak!
