I like school, but sometimes I get confused. 
That's because I learn in a different way. 
But guess what? That's OK.

How I Learn introduces the concept of a learning disability in concrete terms for younger students. This supportive and upbeat story reassures readers that they are capable, and can use "smart strategies" to help themselves learn.

And that's better than OK. That's GREAT!

A Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals is included, with suggestions to guide discussion and help children identify their particular strengths and challenges.
