Kids with LD can learn: they just learn differently. Young people labelled with a “learning disability” or “learning disorder” will find a welcome resource in this fully revised and updated survival guide.

The book retains the warmth, affirmation, and straightforward approach of earlier editions while incorporating current information about why some kids have LD and what supports are available, including new technologies. This illustrated new edition:

  • defines different kinds of LD
  • describes a range of learning aids
  • helps kids deal with bullying and difficult feelings
  • suggests ways to make friends
  • inspires young people to set goals for the future.

Readers will find quizzes, think-about-it questions, stories, and quotes from other kids with LD. A special section discusses how IEPs and 504 Plans help kids with learning difficulties succeed in school. Includes a chapter written to parents and teachers along with resources for kids and adults.
