Dreamer •  Author • Psychologist

Brenda S. Miles

Hello and welcome! I’m a dreamer, author, and psychologist who revels in science and creativity. I work as a licensed Clinical Pediatric Neuropsychologist which means I learn a lot about neurodevelopmental diversity like ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Autism every day from kids, teens, and their families. I also write children's books and make art. Thanks for dropping by. You can learn more about my books, art, and a brand new journey into one of my favorite topics (memory!) right here. You can also find me on Instragram @psych4thought where I review books, talk about brain science, and explore everything else in psychology that inspires me.

All About Memory

Remembering is a remarkable feat. Understanding how the brain makes memories can be a game changer for kids. When I learned a bit about memory as a child, I ran with it—creating fun and elaborate strategies that helped me through high school and university. More memory, less stress!

Learn about my mission to teach kids how the brain builds memories to support learning and mental health.
