About this title

Synopsis:

This book is a clear and sympathetic guide to dyslexia and other learning difficulties - a subject that is often controversial and is of concern to many parents and teachers. Written by a developmental pediatrician, the book deals with difficulties in traditional academic areas such as reading, spelling, and arithmetic, as well as tackling more subtle conditions such as clumsiness, social unease, and hyperactivity. It describes clearly what is known about these problems, incorporating current views and recent research into the explanation of the mental processes involved in learning. The helpful, practical information will aid parents' understanding of their children's difficulties, and advice on managing difficult behaviors is presented. The improvement of children's self-esteem is emphasized. Of further interest is a chapter on adults with persisting learning difficulties. This is the first comprehensive guide to the learning disorders. The encouraging approach and easy-to-read style will appeal particularly to parents, and will also be of value to professionals such as teachers, psychologists, and speech therapists who need an authoritative and up-to-date account of this important subject.
