Straight Talk About Learning DisabilitiesBook - 1999
Attention deficit disorder (ADD), dyslexia, and other learning disabilities affect from five to twenty percent of the population. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in seven people has a learning disorder (LD). Often these disorders are not recognized, leading to problems, not only in school, but also in self-esteem and relationships. Straight Talk About Learning Disabilities provides information and suggestions of ways to get help for those who think they may have a LD or know someone whom they think has a LD. Author Kay Marie Porterfield includes a moving preface in which she discusses her own experiences, in school and after graduation, with LDs. The book also provides a list of agencies to contact for help or additional information.
