A Parent's Guide to Learning Difficulties: How to Help Your Child
A Parent's Guide to Learning Difficulties provides parents with a clear explanation of the many causes of children's problems in learning. The book contains jargon-free and practical advice for helping children with reading, writing, and mathematics. It also explains how previously proven and effective methods can be implemented in home-tutoring situations, as well as in school. While the focus is on children with general learning difficulties, the book also provides important information about teaching and managing children with intellectual, physical, and sensory disabilities, as well as autism. A Parent's Guide to Learning Difficulties also includes links to online information resources and references to books that will be useful.
