Book Description

Parents who suspect or know their children have disabilities often make critical mistakes when seeking help from schools. You can avoid these mistakes. Reading and Learning Disabilities: Five Ways to Help Your Child explains how. It explains what to do. Although it focuses on reading disabilities—the most common of all learning disabilities and one that plagues and demoralizes children with all types of disabilities—you can use the five ways to successfully advocate for children with many other disabilities, such as ADD, autism, dyscalculia, social difficulties, and language disorders. By following the five ways, you may well save your family a great deal of grief and get your child the program and services needed to succeed. The 32 pages in Five Ways can help you and your child’s school. It’s a practical book, written by nationally recognized, highly experienced experts in advocacy, psychology, school-parent relationships, reading disabilities, and special education.

As a principal of a school for special needs children,We struggle with ways to help our students develop into capable and confident readers. This book is easy to read- full of practical and thoughtful advice. Additionally, I recommend this book to parents navigating the often complicated and intimidating world of getting the best services for their child. The suggestions not only make sense but will work. Best of luck!

I have read a review copy of this book, kindly sent to me by Howard Margolis, as I don't own a Kindle.

I am a dyslexia consultant. In the course of my work, I have learned that parents have anxieties about their children's progress in school for months and sometimes years before the parent can get their children's issues addressed by the school.

This concise yet accurate guide gives parents the tools they need to get schools to start addressing their children's educational needs. It also provides parents with a framework for understanding why their children may be struggling in school, and a way to understand what sorts of remediation will be helpful and which interventions may be a waste of the student's time.

I highly recommend this book.
