Nicole Guyon
"I wish I had this book when I started teaching! Every teacher starts out with an empty bag of tricks; it is nice to peek into someone’s bag!"
James Becker
"Provides useful strategies for common disabilities such as dysgraphia, dyslexia, and ADHD. Many of the ideas, including how to improve organization and taking tests, are applicable to all students. This is a useful reference book for all teachers who want to even the playing field for all students so that all may succeed."
