In How Difficult Can This Be? The F.A.T. City Workshop: Understanding Learning Disabilities, Richard Lavoie helps parents of kids with learning disabilities understand how to make the classroom a friendlier place. Creating a workshop that dramatizes a classroom setting, Lavoie leads a group of psychologists, teachers, parents, and kids through a number of "wrong" teaching exercises. By demonstrating the traditional kind of teaching methods that cause frustration, anxiety, and tension (F.A.T.) in children with disabilities, Lavoie conveys a challenged child's perspective. Next, he discusses strategies for combating fear and teaching effectively. The tape includes a discussion guide.
