None of the books ever seems to talk about LD/ADHD people who are just plain okay. And there are many such individuals.
The object of this book is to help parents raise their LD and/or ADHD children so that they, too, can grow up to be okay—so that they will be happy, well-adjusted, and successful adults despite the learning and behavior patterns that make them different.
And for the LD and ADHD adults who read this book, the object is to give you control. With knowledge and understanding, it is possible to take charge of your mental processing and direct your physical energy so that differences that have long been handicaps are converted to assets.
Certified in both elementary education and special education, Suzanne H. Stevens has worked as a consultant and therapist with LD/ADHD children for many years. In addition to her busy lecture schedule, she conducts workshops for parents and teachers throughout the country.
