  • I did not buy this book for a LD child, but my daughter gets side tracked so easily, that I just wanted to browse through this and see if there are any tips on how to get her more focused and help her with the organization of her school work.
    I liked the way this book is written, very easy to understand for kids, and there are many nice tips that could help anyone.

  • The introduction is heavy-handed, You probably feel “all alone in the world.” Many kids with LD some shame, but this phrase almost seems to confirm their sense of isolation, not alleviate it.
    The author states “sometimes teachers will say things like this to parents of kids with LD: “Your child would do fine if he was not so lazy.” Yes, there are always “bad apples” among teachers who will say or suggest that LD students are lazy, but the vast majority have never used this word, so why tell readers about this scenario???
    The book Many Ways to Learn is a much more comprehensive and appropriate guide.

    Here are superb books for children and teens with learning disabilities. For children who are not being read to, it’s important that parents read the book also and start an ongoing conversation.
    Disability awareness and acceptance are common traits of successful students and adults with LD.
    Along with therapists and SPED teachers, parents play a critical role in helping children understand and cope with their disabilities. Be sure to recommend these resources to your friends and your child’s teachers.

  • Kids with learning disabilities often feel like failures in school. Their past experiences tell them that they are helpless to find ways to compete and succeed in the classroom. This book gives many practical, helpful suggestions that can turn a student who feels like a loser into a winner! The best thing an LD student can do is become his or her own best advocate. The ideas in this book make that possible. It is easy to read (about a third grade reading level) and organized clearly. Some of the chapters are titled: You CAN Get Organized, You CAN Learn in Different Ways, You CAN Handle Testing, You CAN Get Along with Others, etc. This emphasis on "you CAN" is just what people with learning disabilities need! The authors also include lists of suggestions for becoming a better reader, speller, more organized, etc. If you know someone with a learning disability, do that person and yourself a favor and get this book. Read it together, if possible. Rhoda Cummings and Gary Fisher have written several books about what they call Learning Differences (LD), and this is one of the best!

  • The author is right on target to assume that kids are interested in making learning easier and more fun. This book includes many specific strategies for building confidence in reading, writing, spelling, math, etc. There is help in organizing time, setting goals, standing up for themselves, coping with testing, etc. This book has reproducible masters to help reinforce learning.
