This is partial to my job BUT so interesting and helpful to anyone who is interested on ADHD, dyslexia, spelling problems, reading problems. I am a nerd but I loved it. I use it as a reference and just read the chapters I need over again. This author has many brain research books that are excellent.
I learned a lot from this book about how the brain develops and functions. It gave me more insight into why children may have learning problems and how their brains function differently from the typical brain. It also gave a lot of strategies to use in teaching students with difficulties, but I found these strategies to be very general and almost common sense. However, they may be helpful to someone with limited experience with children with special needs.
