Overview

In How Difficult Can This Be? The F.A.T. City Workshop: Understanding Learning Disabilities, Richard Lavoie helps parents of kids with learning disabilities understand how to make the classroom a friendlier place. Creating a workshop that dramatizes a classroom setting, Lavoie leads a group of psychologists, teachers, parents, and kids through a number of "wrong" teaching exercises.

Amazing, eye opening. It's the only workshop that puts you inside of your Childs life and allows you to experience all of their daily frustrations. It also gave me ideas of what "to do" and "what not to do" when parenting a LD child. It's a must see!!!!
