This was a great resource for those who teach struggling students in math. Several consultants and special education consultants read this book as a book study and shared a google doc with reflections. An excellent book for math instructors.

I have to say, this is the best book I have been able to find on this very touchy subject. Plenty of great advice here by an author whose experience gives him a rare and valuable perspective.
