This may be one of the most important books an L.D. person--or his or her family or teache---will read, because it shows how to help the learning disabled live comfortably in the world outside the classroom. Unlike texts that focus only on academic remediation for L.D. children, this book tells how to parent and teach an L.D. child and how to help an L.D. adult so that he or she can be successful emotionally, as well as scholastically. It is also the only book written by an author who is both an experienced learning disabilities professional and a parent of L. D. children. Barbara Cordoni knows firsthand the pain, joy, and possibilities of living with the learning disabled.
Techniques, counsel, and case studies to guide counselors, teachers, and parents in their efforts to assist learning disabled children, particularly adolescents, in their social development.
