Summary

  • F.A.T.-frustration, anxiety, tension-are three all-too-familiar feelings for children with learning disabilities and their families. In this program, Richard D. Lavoie, creator of the original F.A.T. City Workshop, reviews the history and philosophy of that project, the major trends and issues in the field of learning disabilities since the late 1980s, and the challenges ahead for educators and parents of children with LD. Lavoie is known worldwide for his powerful and provocative presentations on learning disabilities and has worked in special education for decades as a teacher, an administrator, an author, and a consultant. Distributed by PBS Distribution.
