Serving students with learning differences since 1996


Often times parents of children with learning challenges find themselves not knowing what to do, where to go, or even what questions to ask. We understand and hope that the following references may help in your educational and academic journey.

• NOLO’s IEP Guide: Learning Disabilities: Create an individualized education plan (IEP) and secure the education your child deserves!

This one-of-a-kind book walks you through the Individual Education Program process, providing all the instructions, suggestions, resources and forms you’ll need to understand the special-education system.

• All Kinds of Minds–A Young Student’s Book about Learning Abilities and Learning Disorders by Dr. Mel Levine: This book, written from the perspective of five elementary students who share a class at their neighborhood school, enables a young reader to gain insight and understanding of their own “kind of mind” as they come to terms with either attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, language disorder, social or motor skills deficits. Each child discovers the unique strengths which enable him or her to overcome the difficulties caused by having a “different” kind of mind.

• A Mind at a Time by Dr. Mel Levine: This book shows parents and those who care for children how to identify individual learning patterns, explaining how they can strengthen a child’s abilities and either bypass or help overcome the child’s weaknesses, producing positive results instead of repeated frustration and failure.

• The Everything Parent’s Guide To Children With Dyslexia: All You Need To Ensure Your Child’s Success: Although dyslexia affects 10 to 15 percent of the U.S. population, only 5 out of every 100 dyslexics are recognized and receive assistance. If you’re the parent of a child with dyslexia, this statistic can be disconcerting, especially when it comes to your child’s academic performance and developing social skills. The Everything Parent’s Guide to Children with Dyslexia, by Abigail Marshall gives you a complete understanding of what dyslexia is, how to identify the signs, and what you can do to help your child. This authoritative book seeks to alert parents to the special needs associated with this learning disability and offers practical suggestions for getting involved in the classroom.
