With increasing numbers of parents choosing to educate their children at home, an opportunity exists to explore education outside the school environment. Parents often discover that classroom approaches to teaching and learning do not easily translate into the home. As a result, some radically adjust their approach to educating their children, in some instances virtually abandoning any structured teaching or learning. Focusing on informal learning, this text examines in depth how children can acquire an education simply through everyday experiences. The text sets out to challenge fundamental assumptions about the nature of teaching and learning. Research has been drawn from a wide cross-section of parents from 100 home-educating families.

This book is unique because it is targeted to all the supports in a young person with APD’s life. It contains helpful information and is accessible and entertaining for youth, parents, and professionals. This allows the entire treatment team to have the same information for everyone to be on the same page.

Clinicians can use these action plans as exercises for psycho-educational groups. Survive and Thrive has fun artwork and design to build interest and help make information digestible. However, it treats teens as equal partners in their APD treatment and teaches them strategies for self-advocacy, something that they will take with them their whole lives. Extremely practical, Survive and Thrive, walks individuals through the entire APD diagnosis process, including how to best navigate systems to utilize assets available. Resources are identified; parents will learn they are not alone and will learn how to take penetrate the often confusing world of school systems and obtaining educational support. As illustrated by the examples and biographies shared in the book, including the author’s own personal family struggles with APD and her resilience and determination to become a clinical and school psychologist treating youth with this disorder, APD does not have to define a child or adolescent. It is imperative to have the tools and resources to help them maximize their abilities and live their best lives. “My bookshelves are lined with professional texts that I refer to on a daily basis in my work as a Special Education consultant. The books are arranged according to the disability that the text focusses upon. The narrowest section is for books that explains and demystify the complex challenge of Auditory Learning Disabilities. A paucity of “practical guides” exist for this disorder. Enter Loraine Alderman and her new book SURVIVING AND THRIVING WITH AUDITORY LEARNING DISABILITIES: Strategies for Teens, Parents and Teachers. Dr. Alderman’s readable and user-friendly book explains the disorder and offers field-tested techniques and practices that can enable the motivated student to reach his fullest academic and social potential. Among the books greatest assets is its view of “parent as consumer”. Loraine provides lists of questions and queries that parents should ask when searching for professionals to assist their child and guide the family. Too often, parents fail to realize that a “perfect professional/client fit” can only happen when ALL parties are comfortable and confident with the pairing. I know of no other book that provides this invaluable information. Dr. Alderman’s knowledge, experience, wisdom and sensitivity make this book a must for adults who care for a child with ALD. She will be an invaluable guide on this challenging journey.” ___________Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed.__________ Author- “The Motivation Breakthrough” Executive Producer, Talent The F.A.T.

From the survival instructor and author of When All Hell Breaks Loose, a guide to surviving fear, panic, and the biggest outdoor killers. Cody Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. It is the ultimate book on how to stay alive based on the principal of keeping the body’s core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his entertaining and informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks, and without water for about three days or so. But if the body’s core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6-degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise. “Excellent advice…the obvious product of a man who has gone and done it…well worth reading.”—Field & Stream
