Dyslexia and Other Learning Difficulties: The Facts
Dyslexia and Other Learning Difficulties: The Facts is an authoritative, comprehensive and compassionate guide to the full range of common learning difficulties. A short attention span, restlessness, an inability to write clearly, and reading comprehension well below age-level are all indicators of learning disabilities, and this book offers a clear and sympathetic guide to the difficulties that parents and teachers face when working with a child with these obstacles to learning.
The book deals with difficulties in traditional academic areas such as reading, spelling, and arithmetic, but also looks into lesser known conditions like clumsiness, social unease, and hyperactivity. Providing practical advice to parents to help understand their children's difficulties and to help them overcome problems and improve their self-esteem, Dyslexia and other learning difficulties: The Facts also offers a number of suggestions for managing difficult behaviour.
This new edition has been fully updated and draws on the most recent research on learning difficulties, as well as exploring associated disorders and their treatments. It provides information about electronic and computer aids that are now available to help individuals with learning difficulties. The improvement of children's self-esteem is emphasized throughout the book. This encouraging approach and easy-to-read style will appeal to parents as well as to professionals who work with children with learning disabilities.
