  • Since retiring from School Psychology I have documented the outstanding converns experienced over a 20 year period and noted the incidence of learning disabilities that is increasing at the rate of 10 – 20% every 10 years. Presently, 12% of the public school population has been diagnosed with learning disabilities. I documented an insiders view of the law, administrative procedure, and how the parent can use this information to advocate for an “appropriate” education for their child. The latest research into the causes of learning disabilities is included, and emphasis is upon parental advocacy to remediate or prevent learning disabilities in their children by removing toxins and other traumas from the home environment.
    I would like to submit a copy of LEARNING DISABILITIES Understanding the Problem and Managing the Challenges for your review. Please advise.
