Editorial Reviews

NJEA Review
New Jersey school psychologist and NJEA member Dr. Kenneth Shore offers proven techniques for success in Special Kids Problem Solver, an important tool for teachers. The discussion of academic problems is illuminating, ranging from the traditional problems of the gifted, the unmotivated, and the learning disabled to the less explored ESL student and children with math anxiety. The behavioral problems chapter alerts teachers to the perfectionist and the disrupted student, as well as to the traditional aggressive, disruptive, and school-phobic student. Shore details how to identify each problem and how teachers can help. He lists organizations and a bibliography for further study.
