Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Every child can learn, but many students underachieve in school because of differences in the way they learn. At Landmark College, the first college founded specifically to help students with language-based learning problems, including dyslexia, and attention deficit disorder, students are taught the learning skills that will enable them to function effectively and independently both academically and in the workplace. In Learning to Learn, Carolyn Olivier and Rosemary Bowler discuss, in easy-to-understand language, the nature of learning and how we process information. Basing their methods on the techniques Landmark has employed so successfully, they give guidelines for creating an education program tailored to the individual's needs and abilities, whether the student is eight or eighteen. Parents, students, and teachers describe how teaching methods that recognize the different ways we learn have opened the door to academic success. The authors explain how the principles of teaching and learning described in Learning to Learn can be introduced into the classroom, used at home by concerned parents, and adapted by those trying to overcome learning problems on their own.
