Format: Paperback
Children with learning or social disabilities often suffertremendous loss of self-esteem. This book, written from theperspective of 5 elementary students who share a class at their neighborhood school, enables a young reader to gain insight and understanding of their "kind of mind" as they come to terms with either attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, language disorder, social or motor skills deficits. Honestly and sensitively written, each child discovers the unique strengths which enable him or her to overcome the difficulties caused by having a "different" kind of mind.

I read this book to my 6 year old. Both of us loved the stories about the children and their stengths and weaknesses. Instead of feeling so "different", my child's self esteem soared after reading this book. I recommend it to all families, educators and children who think they are the "only ones" who can't achieve one thing or another. Thank you Dr. Levine!

Format: Paperback
I found this book very informative, and down to earth. It helped me understand much of the Mumbo Jumbo the experts tell you after they advise you that your child is learning disabled. It gave me an effective way to teach my child, that he is not "stupid" and just thinks differently. It gave easy understandable ways to help the child cope with his/her disabilites. Great stratergies to improve their skills. It may have been written for children, but I found it very helpful. I would highly recommend it.

After 5 1/2 years of intensive phonics training, vision therapy, private tutoring and stress beyond belief, I picked up this book at the library. It was the answer to a prayer.
Using the info presented in this book along with "A Mind at a Time" also by Levine, we were able to finally get my son on the right track. If you have a child with a learning problem of any kind I couldn't recommend these books any more highly.
I saw a reviewer mention that the book is written to children and so they found it boring, but I think that reading this book helped me see what I had been missing all along, my child's perspective.

Hello. This is the 2nd Dr. Levine book I've purchased and read. The scenarios are simple enough for me to read with my 5 year old son (diagnosed with fine motor/graphomotor dysfunction.) Some reviewers were not satisfied that this is a book geared for children. It's far better utilized if the book is used with the "Guidelines for All Kinds of Minds" which is sold separately. The guidelines present the lesson format that instructors should use when teaching with All Kinds of Minds. Even though I'm not a teacher, I am able to use the suggestions in the Guidelines to help my son through a difficult learning period. I am so much more well informed now. Thank you Dr. Levine!

Thank you Dr. Levine. This is a great book. I spent the winter school break reading this book to my 11 year old. We had some great discussions about it. Not only did he find himself among the pages of the book, he found many of his friends too. He learned that everyone has strengths and weaknesses in learning. He realized that he is fortunate to be getting extra help in learning and that many of his friends could use help too. It helped him to feel less "different". I think this book should be mandatory reading in the schools. It would help kids to realize our differences and teach them to be more tolerant of each others' learning styles. Thank you again Dr. Levine.

Format: Paperback
A wonderful, funny, informative and helpful book. The magic is in the details, introducing first the strengths and then the weaknesses of each child, the names of the kids and dogs and the procedure for diagnosis and treatment. My son finally gained a vocabulary of the different kinds of minds, so now he can say I may have ADHD but I may also be as grate as "ever ready Eddie".

Have been trying to find out more about ADD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other Neuro disorders and this book, which is actually a text book for school children is great for the younger set to understand that they ae not alone and also for someone as old as I am who just now started questioning why I have always felt so different.
