Many Ways to Learn: Young People's Guide to Learning Disabilities
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
This book is out of print and no longer available for purchase. However, the Second Edition is available.
With a positive, friendly approach, this guide defines learning disabilities, illustrates the different types, and explains where they come from, all the while providing reassurance without overwhelming the child. Many Ways to Learn describes the effects learning disabilities have on young people's behavior, performance, and emotions, and offers solid, proven suggestions for coping at home, in school, and with friends. It features a first-person account from a child with learning disabilities, a chapter on computers and an extensive resource list for parents.
The message in Many Ways to Learn is that kids with learning disabilities have average or above-average intelligence; they just find it difficult to learn in a particular area or areas. With some help from school and family — and a little extra work on their part — they can do as well as anyone else.
Because some children have learning disabilities that make reading difficult, the entire text of the book is also available on a 90-minute audiocassette, complete and unabridged.
