Great reference for parents as well as educators
on June 12, 2007
I found the book to be very thorough and helpful. It first gives an overview of different areas affected by VCFS (22q) written by well-respected researchers and clinicians. The second half is the real gem, though. It has clear and readable information on how kids with VCFS typically learn, and then good recommendations on how to help them learn. The second half is divided into sections based on grade/age, but there are valuable nuggets in all of them, regardless of the age of the child you're trying to help.
For teachers, it is an invaluable tool in setting up accommodations to help kids with 22q learn more effectively. For parents, it provides a way to easily share information with schools - information that previously was either not available or scattered in various papers and books. The fact that the book is written and edited by respected professionals gives it more credence than just the word of a parent.
