Stories of Unlocking Learning Potential have been a part of Maggie Dail for several years. Hitting the High Notes, Jumping the Hurdles, and Rounding the Bases represent how Maggie and her team work with our clients today. Read below for a more detailed description of each of Maggie’s books.
- Becoming Adults in the 21st Century
Have you noticed that it takes longer for children to become adults than before? It takes up to 15 years for what used to take about 3 years. Maggie Dail reviews parents’ and experts’ advice on the subject. Dail, and those she consults, begin with the premise that God’s Word, the Bible, is the definitive word on parenting and any other endeavor in life.

- Rounding the Bases
Published in print in 2010 as a chapter book for struggling readers and their parents, this tells the story of a boy named Chris who loved baseball but struggled in learning to read. His story illustrates how many ICAN
neurodevelopmentalists work with their clients.
- Using Biographies to Teach Children
Combining subjects as in Unit Studies creates a win-win situation for students and teachers/parents and children. Maggie Dail has read and reviewed numerous biographies and historical fiction stories or books and used these as a guide for parents/teachers in teaching the art and skill of writing. Each reviewed biography or historical fiction story/book illustrates one aspect of learning to write. While not a complete curriculum, it does guide the parent in teaching their child to write beginning with paragraphs and building to multiple paragraphs.
