Recommended Books About Learning Disabilities

One of the best and easiest ways to inform yourself about your child's learning disability is by reading a good book on the subject. There is a ton of literature available about learning problems, so it may be a bit of daunting task to choose something to start with. Luckily, there are many informed parents and specialists out there who have already waded through this flood of information, so you don't have to dive in on your own. The following is a list of written resources that have made it past the critical gaze of those in the know: 1.

No Easy Answers: The Learning Disabled Child at Home and at School, Sally L. Smith, $23 (paperback), available at Amazon.com This has been the book that parents of learning disabled children have turned to for more than fifteen years now. Smith is the parent of a learning disabled child, the founder and director of the Lab School, and an education professor at the American University, so she's extremely well-qualified to write about this subject. The book covers a wide range of information, including a look at how learning disabilities are diagnosed and tips on how to make sure your child is getting the education he or she deserves.

The updated version includes sections on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), ADD, and ADHD. 2. All Kinds of Minds: A Young Student's Book About Learning Abilities and Learning Disorders, Melvin D. Levine, $28.70 (paperback), available at Amazon.com Even though this book is geared toward young readers, it's a valuable resource for both parents and children to learn from together.

Levine is a professor of pediatrics at the University of North Carolina Medical School and a staunch child advocate. Here, he introduces different types of learning disabilities through stories told from the point of view of five elementary school students. Each student talks about their classroom experiences, their struggles and triumphs. This approach will help children with learning problems to see that they're not alone and that there are strategies that can they can implement to ease their scholastic difficulties.

3. Helping Children Overcome Learning Disabilities: A Step-by-Step Guide for Parents and Teachers, Jerome Rosner, $18.95 (paperback), available at Amazon.com The approach of this book is different from most others on the subject. For starters, the author suggests that parents and teachers avoid using the label "learning disabled" and instead focus on the specific problems that their children or students face. Rosner is a professor of pediatric optometry at the University of Houston and has written several books on working with children who have learning issues.

Readers will appreciate his accessible explanations of each type of learning difficulty, as well as his positive and practical solution-based approach.
