Answers for Parents of the Child with Learning Disabilities. Showing and Telling It Like It Is!
McCurley, Arlene Bell
The guidebook for parents of learning disabled (LD) children provides answers to questions such as the following: What is a learning disability? How does an LD child behave? What should parents who suspect their child has a learning disability do? Can an LD child succeed in school? How should parents discipline an LD child? How can parents manage a hyperactive child? For example, it is suggested that any combination of the following problems may cause an LD child to fail despite average intelligence: poor concept of time and of spatial relationships, inability to deal with sequence, poor listening ability, problems of attention, inability to receive and organize information from several senses, or poor self-esteem.
