Parenting a child with a learning disability

Book Cover
Pub. Date:
Help your learning-disabled child enjoy school  and learn more effectively. This book shows parents  what they can do at home to help their  learning-disabled child at school. Using nonthreatening,  nontechnical language, Tuttle and Paquette describe a  variety of learning disorders: attention deficit  disorder, dyslexia, hyperactivity, and speaking,  reading, writing, and math disabilities and  difficulties. They show parents how to become more  effective advocates for their child in the school system.  They also discuss how to work with the special  education team, and tell parents what legal rights  they have and how to take advantage of them. The  authors pay special attention to putting learning  disabilities within the context of the entire family  -- how one child's special needs may affect other  siblings, grandparents, etc. Parenting A  Child With A Learning Disibility also  covers the tests and evaluations used by schools, so  parents will know what to expect and how these  tests can affect the child's future. The book  contains a glossary of terms used by special educators  and testing personnel so parents will  feel at ease discussing their child's needs with  educators. Throughout, the authors' tone is  encouraging and reassuring, and parents will be left  feeling they can succeed in helping their child.
