And how to overcome
Many children do suffer from disabilities that restrict their
learning. But a growing range of modern research shows how to
overcome them. And much of that research is now easily-accessible
through the world's biggest-selling book for 1999, The Learning
In a full chapter on the subject, co-authors Gordon Dryden
and Dr. Jeannette Vos start with the inspiring example of Helen
Keller. Until she was ten, Keller was deaf, blind and mute. But by
16 she had learned to read in Braille, and to write and speak well
enough to go to college. She graduated with honors in 1904.
Say the co-authors: "Fortunately her first teacher had
never heard of the term "learning disabled."
Dryden and Vos stress that "everyone is potentially
gifted - in some way." And chapter 11 of their book, which has sold 9 million
copies in China alone, covers these detailed programs to enable
otherwise disabled children to catchup:
- Specialized kinesiology.
- Physical-routine programs.
- The ball/stick/bird method.
- Spelling catch-ups.
- Back writing for mirror writing problems.
- New Zealand breakthroughs.
- The four-minute reading program.
- Finger-phonics program.
- Tape-assisted reading program.
- Peer tutoring.
- The "Look, Listen" method.
- Reading Recovery.
- Personalized key vocabularies.
- Beginning School Mathematics.
- Computerized catch-ups.
- The SEED mathematics program.
- The Glenn Doman method.
- The Tomatis Method.
- Alternatives to ADHD/ADD Syndrome.
