'Effective Learning Support in International Schools is at once a preserving and a progressive witness to what all good teachers and administrators know to be the secrets of outstanding education - intense focus on the strengths and weaknesses of an individual child, the positive affirmation of individual difference, and the adjustment of learning strategies and resources to meet the advancement of children rather than the mindless preservation of an educational bureaucracy.' Dr William G Durden, President, Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA
'This helpful guide will enable international school administrators, specialists and classroom teachers to carefully consider the needs of talented students and those who learn differently. This comprehensive and thoughtful book is an outstanding contribution to classroom teachers who want to reach all of their students and optimize learning experiences for all.' Sally M Reis, Department Head, Educational Psychology, Neag School of Education, University of Connecticut, USA.
