From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-Teens with learning disabilities are often uninformed about their own conditions and how they can most benefit from special-education services. This guide offers a solid base of information including definitions, coping strategies, tips on interpreting test results, legal considerations, and post-secondary-school options. Addressing teens directly in a highly readable format, the authors present a history of learning disabilities, followed by individual chapters focusing on specific disabilities including ADHD, dyscalculia, dyslexia, and dysgraphia. Each chapter includes a description of how it feels to have the particular disability, symptoms, practical suggestions, and resources including Web sites. Profiles, success stories, and quotes are sprinkled throughout. An especially beneficial section provides a sample of test results with explanations and suggestions. Another chapter looks at the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and promotes proactive student participation. The concluding chapters look at higher education and career choices including four-year colleges, vocational or trade programs, military service, and volunteer opportunities. Well organized, up-to-date, and practical, this title is a necessary addition for media centers and special-education collections and will certainly be useful for any student who has a learning disability.
