From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9After an extensive definition and historical discussion of learning disorders, Connelly discusses some individual cases, the impact on society, finding the causes, and treatment. Every topic is presented in the most general of terms, with a lot of repetition. Additional material (one to two pages in length) such as information about a specific school or person is annoyingly inserted in the chapters, sometimes in the middle of a sentence. Black-and-white photographs of children and some famous people with LD such as Patton and Edison appear throughout. The appendixes include organizations, a list of famous people, and the Entitlements of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Coping with a Learning Disability (Rosen, 1995) by Lawrence Clayton and Jaydene Morrison is a more useful book for students.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY

From Booklist:

Gr. 9^-12. In dry, clinical prose, thankfully leavened by brief case studies and profiles, Connelly describes the realities of dyslexia and other learning disorders, exploring the neurological and genetic aspects as well as how the conditions affect the classroom, the family, and society. The case studies clearly illustrate the challenges faced by individuals diagnosed LD as well as those around them, and the profiles of Whoopi Goldberg, Thomas Edison, and others are realistic accounts of people who have compensated for their disabilities and become successful. The book will be appropriate for high-school reports, but its academic tone may be even better suited to teachers and other professionals. A glossary and the text of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are among appended materials. Randy Meyer
