Another Door to Learning: True Stories of Learning Disabled Children and Adults, and the Keys to Their Success
Judy Schwarz and Carol Stockdale have been exploring learning disabilities for two decades, and have witnessed the remarkable breakthroughs of more than a thousand learning-disabled individuals. Another Door to Learning tells some of these amazing and inspiring stories. The reader gets to meet Tyler, whose first-grade teacher described his reading as "like a fisherman--throwing his language out onto the print, like a net flung over the water", which once understood is exactly how he began to learn to read; Frank, husband and father, who could build a house and everything in it but was illiterate, and who learned to read by first learning to rhyme; forty-year-old Lucille, whose speech was so confused she couldn't talk on the telephone but who learned to put language together by playing with a puzzle; nineteen-year-old Janine, who would get lost on the way to her own mailbox but conquered her spatial disability by discovering how to map her environment and script events; and many more unforgettable people who overcame common--and sometimes bizarre--learning disabilities. Narrated with compassion, humor, and gentleness, Another Door to Learning will inspire everyone with its stories of atypical learners, helping to show how a lasting difference can be made in the lives of these fascinating people.
