An innovative, comprehensive guide—the first of its kind—to
help parents understand and accept learning disabilities in their children,
offering tips and strategies for successfully advocating on their behalf and
helping them become their own best advocates
In Thinking Differently, David Flink, the leader of
Eye to Eye—a national mentoring program for students with learning and
attention issues—enlarges our understanding of the learning process and offers
powerful, innovative strategies for parenting, teaching, and supporting the 20
percent of students with learning disabilities. An outstanding fighter who has
helped thousands of children adapt to their specific learning issues, Flink
understands the needs and experiences of these children firsthand. He, too, has
dyslexia and ADHD.
Focusing on how to arm students who think and learn
differently with essential skills, including meta-cognition and self-advocacy,
Flink offers real, hard advice, providing the tools to address specific
problems they face—from building self-esteem and reconstructing the learning
environment to getting proper diagnoses and discovering their inner gifts. With
his easy, hands-on “Step-by-Step Launchpad to Empowerment,” parents can take
immediate steps to improve their children’s lives.
