Gary Fisher, Ph.D., and Rhoda Cummings, Ed.D., are professors at the University of Nevada, Reno. They are also the authors of The Survival Guide for Teenagers with LD.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up-- A book intended for use by young people with this disability. While LD may mean learning disabled to some people, to them, the authors explain, it means "learning different." The book begins with the "Six Great Gripes of Kids with LD," the first of which is, "No one explains what LD is, so we spend a lot of time worrying about what is wrong with us." In the 12 chapters that comprise the body of this book, the authors describe the five types of LD, the rights of LD students in public schools, and a variety of behaviors to help LD kids manage their feelings and get along better at home and in school. The final chapter stresses ways in which to prepare for adult life. Scattered throughout the chapters are activities and exercises to help LD kids to better understand and to cope with their problems. The text is written in a simple, straightforward, and chatty style and includes short case studies and stories explaining how real LD kids reacted in the situations under discussion. A section for parents and teachers provides additional resources and information. The clearly written, factual material will help those with LD and those who live or work with them to understand the complexities of this disability. --Constance A.
