Reaching for the Moon: Overcoming Learning Disabilities. An Interview with Samantha Abeel.
Schools in the Middle, v4 n3 p27-28 Feb 1995
In this interview, 16-year-old Samantha Abeel, who is learning-disabled in math, describes the frustrations of dealing with seventh-grade responsibilities like locker combinations, unfamiliar teachers, and algebra. Sam is gifted in writing but didn't receive special help with math until entering a special education class in eighth grade, where a teacher schooled in learning differences helped her understand mathematical concepts.
