Boosting the Underachiever: How Busy Parents Can Unlock Their Child's Potential

Victor Cogen, Author Plenum Publishing Corporation $21.95 (317p) ISBN 978-0-306-43569-0
``Normal children whose academic performance is significantly below their potential''--this is psycho-educational consultant Cogen's definition of the underachiever, a common problem in classrooms, but one that is generally overlooked in the focus on special education for learning-disabled children. In true-to-life scenarios between frustrated parents and curriculum-driven teachers, the book illustrates steps that can be taken to ease tension and stimulate an underachieving student's interest. The chapter ``Reading: Home Style,'' for example, acquaints parents with techniques to foster their child's curiosity. Practical, jargon-free, the book offers realistic hope to parents willing to invest time helping their ``C student'' children. (Nov.)
