Subject: SOI-Structures of Intellect

I have attended endless colloquia and listened to countless speakers address the symptoms of learning difficulties. Reading remediation, tutoring, and so forth are all good things yet, compared to Dr. Meeker's visionary work, they might be likened to sticking a bandaid on cancer. This spring I had the good fortune to sit in on a SOI (structures of intellect)class based on the work of Dr. Mary Meeker. I was blown away by assessment tools and cognitive therapies designed to treat, not the symptoms, but the unlying problem. Dr. Mary's original work was funded during World War II (no doubt the government was hoping to use it for psychological warefare) and can withstand the test of time. The class was taught by SOI practitioner Claudette Anderson and she is a very good and patient teacher. The 6-week online class (beginning level) will be offered again in July.
