Help Me to Help My Child: A Sourcebook for Parents of Learning Disabled Children

Jill Bloom, Author Little Brown and Company $18.95 (324p) ISBN 978-0-316-09981-3
The viewpoint of a parent whose child was diagnosed as learning disabled (LD) is the distinctive feature of this comprehensive guide to the evaluation of and services available to ameliorate learning problems. What began as Bloom's ( HMOs: The Revolution in Health Care ) search for information and help when her daughter's difficulties became more marked in the first grade results in a book that addresses the feelings of parents as it provides knowledge and skills. The material is presented in nontechnical language, supplemented with lists of national and regional resources and referrals. The author's intent to compile a consumer's manual that will help parents to reach decisions that may make life better for LD children is amply fulfilled. (Feb.)
