Item description for The Ld Child and Adhd Child: Ways Parents and Professionals Can Help by Suzanne H. Stevens...
Overview For those who are interested in learning about learning disabilities and/or attention deficit orders, there are five kinds of books on the market: inspirational, self-help, scholarly, success stories and dire-warnings-of-what-can-happen books. None of the books ever seems to talk about LD/ADD people who are just plain okay. And there are many such individuals. The object of this book is to help parents raise their LD and/or ADD children so that they, too, can grow up to be okay-so that they will be happy, well-adjusted and successful adults despite the learning and behavior patterns that make them different. And for the LD and ADD adults who read this book, the object is to give you control. With knowledge and understanding, it is possible to take charge of your mental processing and direct your physical energy so that differences that have long been handicaps are converted to assets.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ld Child and Adhd Child: Ways Parents and Professionals Can Help?
A parent's lifesaver! May 3, 2002
As a mother of two children with ADD and a teacher of LD/ADD students, I highly recommend it to anyone dealing with a child diagnosed with, or undergoing tests for, learning disabilities and/or Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without hyperactivity). Having read many books on the subject, I consider this one to be the best I've read. This book really helped me understand my kids' ADD problems. It addresses many topics in an easy to understand way, that I continue to refer to again and again. I keep a list of highlighted passages that I often bring to the attention of my fellow teachers, my students' parents, and friends struggling with their children's learning issues.
My Favorite on the Subject of LD Apr 21, 2000
Over the last three years I have read through few and skimmed through many on the subject. This book is definitely one to read cover-to-cover, get out your highlighter and keep handy. I checked it out at the Library and now have bought a copy for my library. I am sure I will refer to it often, because it has very practical advice and doesn't over analyze, yet doesn't simplify either. I particularly liked the section dealing with what the schools will, might and probably won't do. The chapter on family life and LD children was a little short, but very informative.
