Dyslexia and other learning difficulties Summary


Dyslexia and other learning difficulties by Mark Selikowitz (Consultant Developmental Paediatrician and Director, Sydney Developmental Clinic, Sydney, Australia)

Dyslexia and other learning difficulties: The Facts addresses problems many intelligent children face who, while having normal IQ levels, still struggle to learn in the classroom setting. A short attention span, restlessness, an inability to write clearly, and reading comprehension well below age level are all indicators of learning disabilities, and this book offers a clear and sympathetic guide to the difficulties that parents and teachers face when working with a child with these sorts of obstacles to learning. The book deals with difficulties in traditional academic areas such as reading, spelling, and arithmetic, but also looks into lesser known conditions like clumsiness, social unease, and hyperactivity. Providing practical advice to parents to help understand their children's difficulties and to help them overcome problems and improve their self-esteem, Dyslexia and other learning difficulties: The Facts also offers a number of suggestions for managing difficult behaviour. This new edition has been fully updated and draws on the most recent research on learning difficulties and some associated disorders and their treatments. It also provides information about electronic and computer aids that are now available to help individuals with learning difficulties. This encouraging approach and easy-to-read style will appeal to parents as well as to professionals who work with children with learning disabilities.

Dyslexia and other learning difficulties Reviews


I found this book to be an authoritative and compassionate guide to the full range of common learning difficulties, while also offering a number of suggestions for managing difficult behaviour. It is comprehensive in its approach to the associated problems often faced by those with learning difficulties, both children and adults, drawing on the most recent research on learning difficulties and some associated disorders and their treatments. I am pleased to be able to have a book such as this at my disposal. * Nursing Times *
