"No Easy Answers" Apr 2, 2000
Being the Parent of a L.D. (Learning Disabled)Child, I found the hardest part of the entire process to be finding a doctor who could accurately access my child's disability and then finding guidelines to help him grow to his fullest potential. My Early Childhood Development Doctor gave me "No Easy Answers". This book has been the ONLY one which accurately describes my son's problems and which precisely offers guidelines for his education and for living successfully with him. This is our bible on how to best communicate with our Son, how best to integrate him successfully into our family of six, and how to foster his strong points and nurture his weaknesses. I whole heartedly recommend this book for any parent struggling with a child with neurological difficulties. There is hope for our children. This book sheds some light into an otherwise overwhelming task. Good Reading!
