Product Description

First published in 1990, The Survival Guide for Kids with LD has helped countless young people with LD - and the adults who care about them. Meanwhile, laws have changed and technology has advanced. This revised and updated edition retains the best of the original edition: the warmth, affirmation, and solid information kids need to know they're smart and can learn, they just learn differently.

It answers the many questions they have, like "Why is it hard for kids with LD to learn?" and "What happens when you grow up?" It explains what LD means (and doesn't mean); describes the different kinds of LD; talks about what happens in LD programs; helps kids deal with sad, hurt, and angry feelings; suggests ways to get along better in school and at home; and inspires them to set goals and plan for the future. Includes resources for parents and teachers.
