Overcoming Learning Disabilities

The more I read about learning disabilities, the more I understand myself.

A friends suggested that I read Dr. Greenspan’s book, “The Learning Tree,” and I am glad that she did. This book could and maybe should be a text book for educators. As a classroom teacher, I worked with kids with so many different learning disabilities–I don’t mean the obvious ones, such as dyslexia. Instead, some were more hands-on. They had to have it all written down. Some could listen and seemed to do all the processing in their heads.

I never saw the IQ of my students. In fact, I am not so sure that kids should have their IQ measured. Dr. Greenspan points out that IQ is not the definitive score for learning. There is so much more involved.

It doesn’t matter how old or young a child is,  information in this book can be helpful in  OVERCOMING LEARNING DISABILITIES.

No promises for making every child with Einstein abilities. But, understanding and being able to identify and “root out” learning obstacles makes the book a wonderful teaching tool.  I plan to overcome some of the learning disabilities that I have, but were never identified.

I found “The Learning Tree”  on Amazon, but it can be purchased at other online sources and most likely Barnes and Noble in Waco.  Let me know what you think about the book.
