The world of learning disabilities is undeniably complicated and challenging. Shining a bright light into this territory, "Learning Disabilities: A to Z "has long been the trusted resource for parents, helping them navigate the tough issues and arming them with the knowledge necessary to advocate for their children at school. Covering every stage of development from the first day of preschool to the first day on the job, this updated edition also addresses current topics: - Important new discoveries in brain function and information processing - Education reforms made under the No Child Left Behind Act - Significant advances in educational technology, information on testing, medication, improving behavior and motivation, and more . . . Corinne Smith, a leading expert in the field of learning disabilities, and Lisa Strick, a writer who knows firsthand the challenges of raising a child with learning problems, have brilliantly updated their essential guide for parents and teaching professionals. Compassionate and encouraging, "Learning Disabilities: A to Z "will continue to be the book parents reach for again and again as their children grow.

Reviews

""Learning Disabilities: A to Z" should be the first book you reach for when your child has been diagnosed with any type of learning disability. You would be challenged to raise a question that this book does not address." --Cheryl Wilbur, parent volunteer, Committee of Special Education, Westhill School District (NY) "The most complete, readable and valuable book of its kind. If you are a parent of a struggling child, read this book. If someone you love is such a parent, gift them with this book. It is, quite simply, the best. . . . The new edition of "A to Z "is faithful to the mission of the original, but also addresses many of the current issues and concepts that impact education today. . . . Most important, "A to Z" explodes many of the myths and misconceptions that exist in our field." -- Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed., Executive Producer for "How Difficult Can This Be? The F.A.T. City Workshop""" "One of the best books on learning disabilities ever to cross my desk...this complete and readable guide arms parents with all the information they need to act effectively on the child's behalf." --Lynn Altamura, former president, Learning Disabilities Association of New York State
