Editorial Reviews

Review

Cheryl Wilbur parent volunteer, Committee of Special Education, Westhill School District (NY) Learning Disabilities: A to Z should be the first book you reach for when your child has been diagnosed with any type of learning disability. You would be challenged to raise a question that this book does not address. -- Review

I borrowed this book from the library and then I'm here now to buy it for my own. This book goes through each type of disability, how they are identified and will guide you through the maze of school testing, IEP's, and how to be your child's advocate to make sure they are getting everything they should be getting from their education! Great detail on emotional growth, planning for the future and assessment measures!

For any parent facing the possibility or reality that their child has learning problems this is the book I would recommend. I cannot think of a question it did not answer or a facit of the topic it did not cover. It helped me enormously - I am on my second read and this time I am taking notes.

I learned a lot from this book. How frustrating must it be for a child or anyone to be thought of as lazy or having a lack of care, when in reality they are struggling to just grasp what is being taught. This book gives clear examples of why a child may seem good in math one day and bad the next... or in any other subject. If you have a child or are helping a child with learning disabilities, I would definitely recommend this book. If you suspect your child has a learning disability, this would be an excellent book to read. One thing that was particularly interesting to me is that the part of the brain that controls speech is closely connected to the part of the brain that controls the fine motor muscles. A child I am working with had speech problems AND is extremely clumsy. This clicked for me. The book is easy to read and gives intermittent short personal stories that clarify the different learning issues children face. It was very helpful to me. I give it an A+++++++++!
