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.

Reviews

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
