According to her biography, Deak has been praised by schools and organizations such as the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Association of Independent Schools and the Association of International Schools, for demystifying “complex issues of child development, learning, identity formation and brain research.”
Deak is the author of and contributor to many books and articles including The Driver’s Manual for Your Adolescent Brain, How Girls Thrive and Your Fantastic Elastic Brain.
