“Basically, a child with learning disabilities is one who in spite of a normal or high IQ and adequate effort and learning opportunity, has not achieved up to expectations in one or more areas of academic achievement.” (p. 22)

And Furthermore - Just a sampling of Joyce’s Information:

Learning Problems in History – Prior to the sixties and seventies, “...society was less oriented toward school and academics (the hardest areas for these children to find success). Adaptations in expectations and lifestyles were made automatically. Most children were educated in the home to prepare them for a career, not for another year of school.” (p.. 132) Herzog provides mini-biographies of individuals who overcame challenges and excelled in different areas:

§ Hans Christian Anderson - author (p. 132 – 133)

§ Michael Faraday – Father of Electronics (p. 133)

§ Woodrow Wilson- 28th President of the United States (p. 133)

§ Nelson Rockefeller – VP of US and Governor of New York (133)

§ Thomas Edison - inventor (p. 133)

§ Albert Einstein – math genius, scientist (p. 133-134)

§ Many others--- (p. 134-136)

§ She provides a form that parents can complete regarding their child to summarize challenges and goals.

History Repeated – “My people are destroyed by lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6

§ “I am much afraid that schools will prove to be great gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them on the hearts of youth.” Martin Luther – 1483-1546 (p. 141)

§ 106 of the first 108 colleges were founded on Christianity including: Harvard, Yale, Princeton (p. 141-142)

§ “He who thinks morality can be maintained without religion is seriously mistaken. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” George Washington (1779) (p. 143)

§ “...only book deserving of universal attention is the Bible.” John Quincy Adams – 6th president of US. (p. 143)

§ Supreme Court Justice David J. Brewer (1890-1910) “This Republic is classified among the Christian nations of the world. It was so formally declared by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Holy Trinity Church vs. United Sates 143 U.S. 47.” (p. 147)
