Über diesen Titel
Succeeding Against the Odds delivers hope and guidance to anyone whose life has been challenged by a learning disability. Blending more than 25 years of personal experience and accounts of success from people with learning problems, the author has created a practical and compassionate guide for learning-disabled and their relatives, teachers, and friends.From Publishers Weekly:
Until the 1960s learning disability was a hidden handicap wearing many guises and treated ineffectively. Today, shows the author, founder of the unique Lab School in Washington, D.C., and herself the parent of a learning-disabled child, there is growing evidence that such difficulties can be either overcome or modified by teaching strategies that address the student's specific strengths. The stories of adults--some of them celebrities like Cher, who suffered from undiagnosed dyslexia--who coped with learning problems throughout their school days illustrate the depths of the disability said to afflict more than 25 million Americans. Distilling her experiences with learning-disabled students, their parents and teachers, Smith demonstrates that a variety of approaches to learning can yield later career success, thus offering hope to children and adults so burdened.
