Learning Disabilities The Ultimate Teen Guide by Penny Hutchins Paquette, Cheryl Gerson Tuttle

Exclusively written for teenagers and young adults dealing with a wide variety of learning disabilities-including ADHD and dyslexia-this accessible resource offers the tools for taking a proactive role in identifying, understanding, and overcoming the obstacles facing teens with learning disabilities. Learning Disabilities provides a clear and informative overview of the most common disabilities, appealing to teenagers with its easy-to-read format and positive tips for success.


Far more detailed than similar books from other publishers...Although the authors emphasize that the book is meant to be a teen's private source, parents, teachers, and counselors, as well as any serious learner, will find its information and techniques most helpful. VOYA Offers a solid base of information including definitions, coping strategies, tips on interpreting test results, legal considerations and post-secondary-school options...highly readable format...a necessary addition for media centers and special-education collections and will certainly be useful for any student who has a learning disability.
