About the Illustrator
Hailing from the beautiful country of Wales, Carl Pearce claims to have spent the majority of his childhood outdoors and neck-deep in trouble.

Reviews & Awards

The first key to success is self-knowledge — especially for children with learning disabilities. In an extremely supportive and practical way, Stern and Ben-Ami explain the many ways that learning disabilities affect children at school, at home, and with friends. Reading this book will help children (and their parents!) feel better about themselves as they learn why some tasks are more difficult for them, and feel even better about themselves when they apply the hundreds of strategies to more successfully master life's challenges.
—Ari Tuckman, PsyD, MBA, author of More Attention, Less Deficit: Success Strategies for Adults with ADHD

The revised edition of Stern and Ben-Ami's book is excellent. It is laid out well with a clear division of subjects, easy-to-read bullet points, and appealing illustrations. A student with a Learning Disability should find it readily accessible as well as relevant and interesting. In addition, adults will benefit from the information, particularly the many suggestions for ways in which they can help their children. The authors also address social issues that are frequently serious concerns of LD children, and offer both comfort and suggestions. Students, families and professionals will all benefit from reading Many Ways to Learn: A Kid's Guide to LD.
