This book is a sincere attempt to reduce the clouding doubts regarding learning disabilities which indeed is the least understood disability. It often gets really difficult for parents as well as teachers; to resolve the questions of what to do when a learning disability is detected, where to go or even what exactly the problem is.
The book will thus, try to explain the various aspects of learning disabilities with clarity and defined goals for all the nine chapters. The first chapter offers the precise explanation to what the problem of learning disabilities is along with a brief account on the various types. The second chapter follows with an aim to unravel all the possible causes of learning disabilities. .After this fundamental knowledge regarding the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of learning disability, rest of the chapters provide a detailed account on each type
Chapter three, four, five would deal with the issues of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia whereas Chapter six and seven would highlight the features of specific learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Syndrome respectively. All these chapters clearly outline the definitions, signs, symptoms and effects of various types. The book would have been incomplete without the coping methods. Hence they too find a place in the book along with a detailed list of all the treatment and resource centres across states in India. The book ends on a positive note with a special mention on global achievers with learning disability. We hope the book strengthens the belief among all the stakeholders that children with learning disability can also dare to dream. We also pray that this book will help some child somewhere to realise his dream and bring a smile on his parent’s face.
