"Smart Kids With Learning Difficulties: Overcoming Obstacles and Realizing Potential" is an engaging must-read for any parent, educator, or counselor of smart kids who face learning difficulties. The authors, who have more than 20 years experience working with and advocating for gifted and learning-disabled children, provide useful, practical advice for helping smart kids with learning challenges succeed in school. The purpose of "Smart Kids With Learning Difficulties" is to guide parents and educators toward identifying and planning for smart kids with learning challenges so that they will reach their true potential. This book deals with research and experience the authors have gained from working directly with students who are smart, but struggle in school. The authors present learning and teaching methods that have been applied successfully to both the gifted and talented and the learning-disabled populations. These methods can, and should, be used with all bright kids with learning difficulties, whether or not they have official labels. Topics covered in the book include identifying and recognizing gifted/learning-disabled students, what the law says about this population, planning and developing accommodations that empower these students, what works and doesn't work in the classroom, tools and checklists to build supportive learning environments, and the roles and responsibilities of parents, students, and school personnel. For additional information on gifted students with learning difficulties, see "Distinguishing Characteristics of Gifted Students With Disabilities," "Teaching Gifted Students With Disabilities," and "Successful Strategies for Twice-Exceptional Students."

This book is very helpful in explaining that a child whom one perceives to be very intelligent, is probably really as smart as you think she is. It also explains how that same child can be failing or having difficulties at school. It is useful in describing the different types of cognitive or developmental issues that might be affecting the child, and treatment options for same. The book gives and informed overview of several types of behavioural and cognitive issues.
