This comprehensive guide explains the symptoms and terminology associated with children who struggle in school because of underachievement and learning problems and offers parents practical solutions.

Over seven million children suffer from learning difficulties. Most of these children are stuck in classrooms where their needs are not met or even recognized by an overcrowded school system. However, with the right information and diagnostic tools, parents can provide life-long learning skills specially targeted to their children’s needs. This book lays out the symptoms, terms, and strategies parents will encounter if their child has a learning block and explains how to convey their child’s needs and condition to teachers.

Categorized and cross-referenced for easy access, ROADBLOCKS TO LEARNING covers over 70 different obstacles to learning. From study skills to ADD, from problem solving to teacher-child conflict, this indispensable guide is for all parents who want to ensure their child is learning to his/her full potential.
