Different Learners:  Identifying, Preventing, and Treating Your Child's Learning Problems

For any parent or teacher concerned about a child's learning 

"...A very hands-on guide with anecdotal case studies, the latest brain science...made comprehensible, and plenty of bulleted checklists covering symptions, action steps, and advice... a ready reference parents will welcome." — Publishers Weekly

  • How to prevent learning problems — even genetic ones — from developing
  • Why learning difficulties sometimes mask significant talents for the 21st century
