Customer Reviews

Incredibly useful! June 26, 2011
I have found this textbook incredibly useful, generous in the "extras" it provides, and very encouraging to the teacher, the educational therapist, the parent, and the student. It gets across a lot of information in as painless a way as possible. It reads very easily, gives many strategies, and contains resources to implement the strategies. Strongly recommend this resource to others!
