No Easy Answers: The Learning Disabled Child.
Smith, Sally L.
Intended for parents and professionals, the text considers characteristics and causes of severe learning disability (LD) in children. Separate chapters are addressed to descriptions of LD traits: disordered, immature, inflexible, lost in time and space, clumsy, free spirit, and defeated at school. Subsequent chapters examine the roles of parents and teachers and discuss special considerations for adolescence. Among six appendixes are lists of typical academic problems of LD children and a guide to helpful organizations. (CL)
