    Helping Your Child with Language Based Learning Disabilities
    Based in cutting-edge research in neuroscience, education, and the principles of attachment-based teaching, this important guide for parents offers tools and practices to help children transcend language-based learning difficulties, do better in school, and gain self-confidence and self-esteem. If your child has a language-based learning difficulty such as dyscalculia, dyslexia, and auditory processing disorder they may have to work twice as hard to keep up with their peers in school.

In this book, you'll discover why it's so important to accurately assess your child, find new perspectives on LBLDs based on the most current studies, and discover tips and strategies for navigating school, home life, and your child's future. Most importantly, you'll learn how your own special bond with your child can help spark their interest in reading, writing, and math. Every child is unique and every child learns in his or her own way. With this groundbreaking guide, you'll be able to help your child thrive, in school and life.
