Review

"Experience with the arts, sports and the outdoors can teach social skills, expand attention span, develop a work ethic and reinforce academics, said Craig Pohlman, a psychologist and author of "How Can My Kid Succeed in School?" (Chicago Tribune, October 25, 2009)

From the Back Cover

How Can My Kid Succeed in School?

How Can My Kid Succeed in School? gives parents and teachers easy-to-follow steps for helping children and adolescents who are struggling in the classroom. In this indispensable resource, Dr. Craig Pohlman outlines how to reveal a child's learning profile, an inventory of the child's unique strengths and weaknesses. Throughout the book, Pohlman offers specific guidelines for selecting the learning strategies that best fit a child's learning profile. He also shows how parents and teachers can collaborate with clinicians to get the most out of an assessment and to help improve the child's chances for success.

Praise for How Can My Kid Succeed in School?

"For all you parents like me who struggle to assist your child with learning issues, here is a well-written and easily digestible book that helps you understand their challenges and map a plan for success." —Jonathan Page, parent of 8- and 10-year-old boys


More About the Author

Craig Pohlman, Ph.D., is the Director of Mind Matters at Southeast Psych, a learning success program in Charlotte, NC. Mind Matters believes in describing learners (not just labeling them), identifying strengths (not just weaknesses), explaining findings clearly (not just reporting scores), collaborating to support struggling learners, and improving the self-insight of all learners. Mind Matters provides assessment, tutoring, coaching, advocacy, and professional development.

Craig began his career teaching science to elementary and middle school students in New York City. He then earned his doctorate in school psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), where he trained at The Clinical Center for the Study of Development and Learning, University of North Carolina School of Medicine. After an internship in the Dallas Public Schools, he returned to UNC-CH for a fellowship, later earning appointments as Clinical Assistant Professor and as Clinical Scientist. Prior to joining Southeast Psych he was Senior Clinical Scholar at All Kinds of Minds and Senior Neurodevelopmentalist at the Success in Mind clinic in Durham, NC.

A licensed psychologist, Craig has conducted or supervised thousands of assessments of struggling learners and has trained thousands of professionals on assessment techniques. He also has designed systems and tools to help others integrate neurodevelopmental assessment into their work with students.

Dr. Pohlman offers a powerful, strengths-based approach to understanding children as learners. This book provides a system for understanding learning breakdowns, as well as strategies for using the student's strengths and affinities to manage those breakdowns. A great resource for parents and teachers!

As a resource coordinator for a K-8 school, I talk to many parents who are trying to figure out why their child is doing poorly in school. This book helps me gather the words to assist the parent(s) put the problem in focus. It is presently on loan to a kindergarten parent who needed to come out of his son's conference with something to consult. While processing what he was told, it is my hope that these parents can clarify what they need to do while reading How Can My Kid Succeed in School.

I really enjoy and appreciate Dr. Pohlman's approach to learning challenges: He offers easy-to-follow guidelines for school success without fixating on worrisome labels. His communication style is thoughtful and professional--an ideal combination for parents of children struggling in school. This book surely will become an essential resource for parents and teachers who want a new, studied strategy that focuses not just on a child's learning blocks, but also on his/her strengths. I am recommending this book to all of the parents, educators, and child psychologists I know!

Format: Paperback
I read this book looking for tips to assist our son who is struggling with homework. I found the easy-to-read tables summarizing the "clues" to learning challenges and recommended strategies particularly helpful. The approach is strength-based and innovative. We have already begun to implement some of the suggested strategies and have seen immediate positive response from our son. I would highly recommend this book to parents and teachers who seek a deeper understanding of the best way to help a student learn and succeed in school.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Pohlman's book provided excellent practical information about how students with learning difficulties struggle developing basic academic skills. The book helped me as a parent understand some of the underlying learning challenges that my student faces both in and out of school. Dr. Pohlman explains how to find a competent evaluator and how to get useful information from psychological testing. The most helpful part of the book to me was on learning strategies that help students at home and in the classroom. I would highly recommend this book to parents, teachers and other professionals who work in the area of learning differences.
