I have not only read this book, but have also met Mr. Rosner the author. In fact he gave me the book because he diagnosed my daughter with a learning difficulty while she was in the second grade. We used the "dots" exorcise for several months and other suggestions. My daughter graduated high school in 2003 with college credits and a high ranking. As Mr. Rosner writes, the difficulty was corrected by informed willing parents who were willing to inform teachers. My daughter is now a junior in college majoring in English with teaching acreditation. Her current GPA is 3+. There is hope and this book is a beginning.
