Product Description

The Pretenders, 2nd Ed.
Gifted People Who Have Difficulty Learning
"The Pretenders will offer inspiration and hope for students starting down this difficult path toward growth and success. It will also help parents, educators, and health and mental health professionals to understand the emotional pain and academic struggles caused by unrecognized learning disabilities." — Larry B. Silver, M.D., Director of Training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Georgetown University
What would you do if, no matter how hard you tried, you could not learn to read? Would you continue to try or would you resign yourself to pretending, for the benefit of others, that you could read? The Pretenders tells the stories of eight people who never stopped trying. From humiliation in school and the anxiety of coping with everyday life unable to read street signs and menus, to shopping, driving, and working, these people lived in a world of dashed hopes and dreams — regardless of outward appearances. With help from Dr. Barbara Guyer, they discovered their learning disabilities and unlocked their true gifts.
