Overview

With Faking It, Christopher Lee and Rosemary Jackson changed the way we view special learners, offering a moving account of Lee's struggle and ultimate triumph over dyslexia. Now, with What About Me?, Lee combines his special insight with Jackson's expertise as a special education trainer to offer specific help to teachers and parents of other misunderstood learners.

What About Me? is a practical yet personal book on how to help special learners grow into self-sufficient, responsible adults who can recognize their strengths and manage their weaknesses. To that end, Lee and Jackson offer specific guidance on:

  • what you can do and where you can go if your student has a learning disability
  • what it's like to perceive words and numbers differently
  • how to help students with learning disabilities become creative writers
  • how to maximize memory skills
  • how to encourage kinesthetic and tactile learners to thrive in the classroom
  • how to recognize, deal with, and honor personal survival skills
  • how to help students develop self-advocacy skills
  • how assistive technology can help
  • where to find more information on learning disabilities and assistive technology.
What About Me? is the result of a unique collaborative effort. United through a passion to make the system better, Lee and Jackson pool their perspectives to create this unique look into the world of misunderstood learners.
