Succeeding with LD contains true and inspiring stories as told by children and adults with learning differences. A few individuals are famous, but most are not. All invite you into their lives, talk about people who helped them, remember times when they felt frustrated, sad or angry, and offer wise advice. Each person profiled also describes the resources they used to focus on their strengths and to never give up. First published in 1997, this new edition includes a “10-years later” update about each individual.
