Drawing on more than 20 years of groundbreaking research tracing the lives of children and adults with learning disabilities (LD), researchers at the Frostig Center in Pasadena, California have identified key factors that contribute to success. While offering no guarantees, the researchers discovered that possessing many of the "success attributes" gives those with LD a much better chance at a satisfying and fulfilling life.
We are pleased to recommend the Frostig Center's Life Success for Children with Learning Disabilities — A Parent Guide which describes each of the six success attributes — self-awareness, proactivity, perseverance, goal setting, support systems, and emotional coping strategies — and how each can aid in a child's development and ability to achieve life success.
View an online version of the guide or a ready-to-print PDF on LDSuccess.org.
"The Guide will serve as an ongoing resource for all of us engaged in the task of raising or working with children with learning disabilities." — Dr. Robert Brooks, author of The Self-Esteem Teacher
