Overview

Parents and teachers of learning disabled children have tumed to Sally Smith's No Easy Answers for information, advice, and comfort for more than fifteen years.  In this revised, trade paperback edition of the latest information on learning disabilities in a clear, honest, and accessible way. This completely updated edition contains new chapters on Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and on the public laws that guarantee an equal education for learning disabled children.  There is also an entirely new section on learning disabled adults and the laws that protect them. Sally Smith, the parent of a learning disabled child herself, guides parents along every step of the way, from determining if their child is learning disabled to challenging the school system to provide special services.  Drawing on more than twenty-five years of experience at her own nationally acclaimed school, she also offers valuable strategies to teachers who are anxious or discouraged as they struggle with learning disabled students.  Although there are no easy answers, Sally Smith's experience, wealth of information, and sense of humor provide essential support.

Discusses how to use TV & the arts as teaching tools/identifying ADHD/incl. listings of books, videos, etc.

    Must Read

    For anyone who deals with students in anyway shape or form - this is a must read. Anyone who thinks there is something wrong with formal education needs to read this. The more I read about the "learning disabled" the more convinced I am that the onus is not on the student but on the school system and that the problem is not "learning disabilities" but "Teaching disabilities from time constraints, the philosophy of the cookie cutter student; lack of incorporation of how we learn into how we educate; ridiculous mandates and expectations from policy makers so far removed from the classroom that they couldn't find one without GPS; and parents who want to impress with brand-named colleges."
