All Kinds of Minds by Mel Levine.

Written from the perspective of five children who attend a neighborhood school. Each child has a different "kind of mind" - attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, language disorders, social or motor skills deficits. These children discover the unique strengths that enable them to overcome problems caused by having a different "kind of mind." 

One mom says, "I read All Kinds of Minds to my 6 year old. We both loved the stories about the children and their strengths and weaknesses. I recommend this book to families, educators and children who think they are the "only ones" who can't achieve one thing or another. Thank you Dr. Levine!
