Parenting Bright Kids Who Struggle in School: A Strength-Based Approach to Helping Your Child Thrive and Succeed
Parenting Bright Kids Who Struggle in School guides parents through the challenging and often unfamiliar landscape of raising kids who have been labeled with learning differences, including dyslexia, ADHD, autism, sensory processing disorder, and more.
This book builds upon Harvard professor Todd Rose's groundbreaking research in the Science of Individuality in which an individual's unique profile of strengths and weaknesses is leveraged in order to help him or her live a fulfilling, successful life. By understanding their child's jagged profile, the context of learning, and multiple pathways, parents will learn revolutionary techniques to encourage their child's strengths and mitigate weaknesses through the strategies here.
Parents will also discover how to manage the emotional fallout of raising a child who does not conform to the 'average' model of learning so prevalent in the modern school system. Drawing from her own experience as a parent of a child with learning differences — who is now a highly successful adult — the author outlines clear lessons from a quarter century of advocating for kids who learn differently.
