|The Overcomers: Christian Authors Who Conqured Learning Disabilities|
By Molly Noble Bull, Margaret Daley, Ginny Aiken, Jane Myers Perrine, and Ruth Scofield
(Westbow Press, 2011)
This book shares first person perspectives on coping with having a learning disability. Our featured author this week, who has also been a teacher of special needs students, shares her own journey.
I recommend this book for parents of children with learning disabilities, persons diagnosed with learning disabilities, and for teachers. It is a great resource for what it is like to experience these difficulties first hand and to overcome them, with God’s help.
My own husband and my son both had problems with reading and both received vision therapy and special education services. I thank God that our son, now 10, who didn't read two years ago by himself, now is reading at the 11th grade level. And my husband is a successful marine engineer despite his early difficulties. Margaret’s comments paralleled much of what my husband has said to me over the years. I really appreciate her sharing her experience with others.
Thank you, contributors to “The Overcomers: Christian Authors Who Conquered Learning Disabilities” and keep getting your message out there!
Giveaways: In addition to Margaret’s giveaway and our OTT-WGH giveaway of one of Margaret’s fiction books (choice of book and format) we will be giving away a copy of The Overcomers: Christian Authors Who Conquered Learning Disabilities to a reader who would be one of the people I recommend this book to in particular.
