I really think this book is a good resource for schools, teachers and counselors. This book should serve as a foundation for understanding learning disabilities. We found this book moderately helpful because we were already pretty knowledgeable about ADHD, but we are donating a copy to the school for future reference so that teachers can have a resource to help them understand How It Feels to Have.... If you work with children, not just teens, this is a must read.
