Learning Disabilities from the Author: Soren V. Randall. A learning disability (LD) is a neurological disorder that affects the brain's ability to receive, process, store and respond to information. The term learning disability is used to describe the seeming unexplained difficulty a person of at least average intelligence has in acquiring basic academic skills. These skills are essential for success at school and work and for coping with life in general. LD is not a single disorder. It is a term that refers to a group of disorders. LD is a disorder that affects people's ability to either interpret what they see and hear to link information from different parts of the brain. These limitations can show up in many ways: as specific difficulties with spoken and written language, co-ordination, self control or attention. Typical learning difficulties include dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia - often complicated by associated disorders such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. This book brings together leading research in the field.

Learning Disabilities from the Author: Marta L. Marchisan Ph. D.. Can an image of an angel in a mirror be a sign that God chose me to have cancer for a reason? A Mirrored Image is a courageous story about a thirty-nine year old woman who was preparing for her seventeenth year of teaching when suddenly she was facing the biggest challenge of her life. From diagnosis to recovery and knowledge of finding myself, this book is a look at a candid account of a battle with a devastating illness of rectal cancer and a sense of the person I became. It celebrates life and the triumph of a determined, courageous, and spiritual woman. As the mental healing was beginning so did the chemotherapy. With faith and positive thinking, I tell about my struggle and outline the processes I used to deal with surgery and treatments. I used many facets other than medical to survive and begin my celebration of life. My hope is for all newly diagnosed cancer patients to find the faith, strength, courage, and hope to fight cancer with a positive attitude and win. I also hope that people still battling cancer finds the inspiration and guidance to enrich their outlook of this disease and their life.
