From the rear cover of this 106 page book: The number of children who suffer from language impairment in speaking, reading, writing or spelling, which may noticeably impede one, some or all of these areas, is surprisingly high. Provided that appropriate action is taken, such problems will not usually inhibit the child's long term progress. Professional advice and involvement is important, but parents themselves can actively participate in the process of helping the child to overcome difficulties by using this book. 'Take Time' consists of an introductory background followed by a series of thoroughly tested and purposeful exercises which tackle fundamental developmental problems behind learning difficulties. These can assist with a wide range of conditions, including those diagnosed as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The book is recommended for teachers, therapists and parents by all the major advisory and learning support organisations in the UK, and many more in other English-speaking countries. 'Take Time' has, in fact, become one of the most popular resources for parent involvement, due to the authors' - Mary Nash-Wortham and Jean Hunt - highly readable and 'user-friendly' style, and for the pure enjoyment and sense of achievement that can be gained from using the exercises in the family environment.
