Statistical reports indicate that 2.7 million public school students nationwide have been identified as learning disabled, and that fifty percent of all high school dropouts come from inner city schools where twenty-five percent are learning disabled. Since learning disabled students innately have average to superior IQ¿s, why can¿t they learn? For years educators have been in search of the right reading approach, one that would meet the needs of all children. Since the early 1900¿s we have switched from a sight approach, to a phonetic approach, linguistic, whole language, integrated, and now, a researched based, balanced approach. The No Child Left Behind Act has set a goal that by 2014, all children in the United States are to be proficient in reading. The dilemma lies in how this is to be accomplished even with this improved balanced approach. Educational specialist Addie Cusimano shares her findings which are based on her research, work and success with students from pre-school to college age, from learning disabled to gifted. She presents her answers to the No Child Left Behind Act, discusses approaches that work best, the importance of teaching specific learning skills, and offers many valuable teaching techniques and strategies. Her premise is that learning disabled students can and should be cured at the elementary level, and that the best approach for all children is one that incorporates more facets of learning than are presently taught. This revised second edition of her book adds two new chapters, the teaching of foreign languages and mathematics. Written in an easy to read fashion, Learning Disabilities: There is a Cure offers educators, parents and professionals a refreshing and assured method for the solution to serious academic concerns.
