Written by Judith Stern, M.A. and Uzi Ben-Ami, Ph.D.
Illustrated by Michael Chesworth
This book is written for children with learning disabilities. The “user-friendly” text describes different kinds of learning disabilities, reassuring children without overwhelming them. It explains to children with learning disabilities that they have average (if not above average) intelligence and discusses the many things kids can do to reach their goals.
Many Ways to Learn is not just another guidebook. It is personal, with one child who has a learning disabilities telling his own story. It is in step with modern technology and includes a special chapter on computers and software for children with learning disabilities. Children will find it very practical, as it is full of suggestions on things like homework and studying for tests that kids can use right away.
