From a respected pediatrician and author comes this accessible yet authoritative guide for parents who know or suspect that their child has a learning disability. In this book, parents get clear descriptions of the recognized learning disabilities. Dr. Feldman covers how LD assessments are conducted and what doctors learn from them.
Once parents are given the background on learning disorders, Dr. Feldman provides an up-to-date discussion on treatment, including the pros and cons of currently popular prescribed drugs. A child with special needs must be considered a part of the family dynamic, and merely knowing the facts, while it is the key to understanding your child, it isn't enough to help your child thrive. To this end, "Learning Disorders" offers invaluable advice on how to help your child and family live with LD, day-to-day and for the promising future.
Topics discussed in this invaluable resource include: dyslexia and other reading problems; problems with writing, spelling, and math; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); autism; separation anxiety; and common phobias.
