Overview

Keeping A Head in School: A Student's Book about Learning Abilities and Learning Disorders is written for students ages 9 to 15 years of age with learning disorders. This book helps students gain important insights into their problems by combining realism with justifiable optimism. Dr. Levine helps students not only understand their own strengths and weaknesses but also more fully appreciate their individuality. Most chapters begin with a case study based on the life-like situation of a student with one or more learning disorders. Each student's story is followed by questions to think about after reading the entire chapter. Throughout the book, diagrams, lists, and drawings illustrate important concepts.

Keeping A Head in School is effective as a shared reading experience: for example, parents and children can read the book together, developing a common vocabulary and understanding about the learning process. A tutor, counselor, or psychotherapist can discuss a particular chapter with a student and/or parent. Other uses are as a resource in a course on health, development, learning, or psychology in the secondary school; or as reading matter for siblings or friends of students with learning disorders.
