In the past, people who learned differently, regardless of the cause, were pushed along and expected to conform to normal expectations. This resulted in many of them dropping through cracks and feeling like they were broken. There is now a better line of thinking that they are not only not broken, but equipped to do things normal people cannot. Taking Flight shows these people, and their families, how education is not out of reach.
Using stories from people who have already faced the challenge of college and practical advice, this book serves as a great resource for youth who find their learning style differs from the traditional methods. First, they are assured that they are not messed up or wrong, but that they have much to offer. Then, they are told how they can work to find schools that will adapt with them.
This book is helpful for students in high school and middle school who are looking to prepare for college. It can also be used by parents of younger children so that they can be ready for when their kids get older.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
