Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446679011, Paperback)Drawing on 30 years of experience on the front lines of special education, Lawrence Greene offers hope and help for parents of children with learning deficits. Rather than simply rounding up the usual suspects, dyslexia and ADD, Roadblocks to Learning clearly catalogs 70 different obstacles--from test anxiety and poor time management to underachievement and disorganization---that can interfere with your child's enjoyment of and accomplishment at school.
Time is of the essence, warns Greene. "When deficits are overlooked or misdiagnosed, children may conclude that they cannot succeed in school and they will lower their expectations and aspirations." He cuts through the jargon of tests, diagnosis, and treatment, offering parents smart insights and strategies to address six categories of learning deficits: academic, applied intelligence, behavior, perceptual processing, psychological defenses, speech, and language.
Each chapter includes red-flag behaviors for a learning roadblock such as difficulty with essay test taking or following instructions, in addition to methods for tackling the problem. Greene has done a superb job of equipping parents with the ability to pinpoint learning problems and become informed advocates for their children. --Barbara Mackoff
