Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The many aspects of learning disability are personalized in this collection of essays, poems and reflections by children, young adults, their families and teachers, who bare their pain as well as their courage. Dyslexia and attention deficit disorder are among the obstacles that prevent children from ``fitting in'' at an early age. As these writings attest, when properly nurtured by perceptive, caring parents and knowledgeable teachers, such students have a better chance of succeeding. These heartfelt writings reveal the world of those often termed ``lazy'' or ``stupid'' when their ability to read a sentence or solve a math problem is severely compromised, and generally not understood. Here they define themselves as real people, contending with bias and celebrating their triumphs. This inspirational collection includes resource material. (Apr.)
