This book is about the problems of intelligent children who struggle to learn. The author deals with difficulties in traditional academic areas such as spelling, reading and arithmetic, as well as tackling more subtle conditions such as clumsiness, social unease and hyperactivity. He describes what is known about these problems, incorporating current views and research into his explanation of the mental processes involved in learning. He concentrates on information that is of practical relevance to parents in understanding their children's difficulties and in helping them to overcome them - including advice on helping children to gain skills and improve their self-esteem, and suggestions for managing difficult behaviours.
