Overview

"They're coming out of the woodwork!" experts remark on the skyrocketing number of students identified as having an attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or learning disability.

For years, the assumption has been that it is mainly parents who need to be shown how to help their LD/ADHD children. This book is unique in its emphasis on educating teachers and other professionals as well as mothers and fathers—all those who must join efforts to lead LD/ADHD children to academic success.

Author Suzanne H. Stevens also knows the importance of recognizing the unusual creativity and other abilities found among LD/ADHD children, abilities long neglected by a system bent on forcing them into a mold they do not fit.

Stevens offers practical suggestions on:

recognizing the LD/ADHD child

adjusting teaching techniques

using specialists effectively

adjusting classroom management procedures

testing and grading fairly

The result is a balanced, optimistic look at ways of helping an increasing number of children reach their full potential in class.
