Parents and doctors often treat learning disabilities based on behaviour rather than what is actually happening in the brain to cause that behaviour. A diagnosis of ADHD can stem from any number of things - and medication won't cure the fact that the child may have a sensory impairment or a brain that's not wired to retain information after 10 minutes without some kind of stimulating break. With comprehensive chapters on every kind of learning disability the Eides offer a genuinely informed alternative understanding for millions of parents and teachers the world over.

Sep 17, 2012

An excellent resource for parents and educators on many undetected or "mislabeled" learning disabilities. It is a big book full of information on PDD-NOS, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Audio-Processing disorder, and many more other difficulties that some young children and some adults face as they try to develop their reading and writing and communication skills. Is your child struggling? Have a look at the various symptoms of these difficulties. It could be what she or he is dealing with. Brock Eide not only lists the symptoms and describes the difficulties a person has with these disorders, but provides helpful strategies to aid in the learning process. There is also a chapter on teaching gifted children.
