Making the Words Stand Still

Donald E. Lyman, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $15.95 (272p) ISBN 978-0-395-36219-8
From his viewpoint as a father and professional educator involved with the phenomenon labeled, in current educational jargon, ""learning disability,'' Lyman, who recently founded a residential school in North Carolina for such handicapped children, writes of his success. Eschewing trendy bandwagon approaches, he has for the past quarter-century built his teaching programs on the learning strengths, rather than the deficiencies, of the child suffering from dyslexia, dysgraphia and other associated learning handicaps. His empathy springs from personal victory over an early handicap, and illumines his expertise. Tireless in pursuit of mastery, his efforts at establishing the cause of disability place Lyman outside the pale of current pedagogical fads. The measurable successes of his technique and insight offer a lifeline to anguished parents. January
