 In response to inquiries regarding the citations for the "research" that
 shows that boys and girls process information differently, I made this
 statement from the standpoint of a parent with a child with autism. ...
 As a parent Helen Barclay

Re: the above thread:
I am citing original research, not down-line articles and interpretations:

Myra and David Sandler (sic) researched the different ways teachers respond
to boys and girls input in their book, the name of which escapes me right
Also the book: Women's Ways of Knowing a research laden anthology that
includes the ways girls process information, edited by Mary Belenky, etc

  Also Deborah Tannen's original research reported in her first book:
"Please Understand Me" covers the different ways girls and boys process

Also the research on brain chemistry by Estelle Ramsey, at Georgetown
University found some biologically significant differences.

However, I do not encourage nor like to indulge in the polarizing
"either-or" discussion of which is "truth": nature OR nurture. We are
unique creatures, each one AND we are quite similar. Generally
speaking....AND we have sex determined differences that are then acted upon
by the culture in assigning variable value.
