Overcoming Learning Difficulties eBook


Overcoming Learning Difficulties
By Barbara Pheloung and Jill King

Even the intelligent child can have learning problems. Fifteen to twenty percent of school children puzzle their parents. They do not learn as well as expected, and have unexpected behaviour problems. These children are often described this way: “Should do better”; “Can’t sit still”; “The class clown”; “Rebellious”; “Not trying”; “Dumb”. Parents instinctively know there is a problem, but don’t know how to solve it.

“There is a great need for this book because parents know when their child is having problems but it is difficult to convince others. Some people thought I was neurotic when I was seeking help for Scott. Because of the help he’s received he is now more confident and more competent.”

Vicki Morton, Mother of a 7-year-old LD child
