Product description...

I am not an exception to the rule, I am the rule and I happily proclaim: All Students Can Learn.

In 1976 while struggling in high school, special education was just finding a foothold in the hallways of America’s educational systems. By the end of that year, regular and special educators were discussing such issues as roles, responsibilities, needs, and resources to fulfill the mandates of federal legislation (PL 94-142), but during that time Richard Evans became just another high school dropout. He dropped out of high school never understanding why school was so difficult until 1992 while having a psychological evaluation for depression. He was diagnosed with two distinct learning disabilities (Developmental Reading Disorder and Expressive Writing Disorder). Later Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder would be added to the list. Just knowing that his problem had a name and that he was not stupid gave him hope. He now knows that just because he learns differently and writes poorly, it does not mean that he is stupid. In 2004 Richard completed his academic endeavors by earning a Ph. D. in Educational Psychology from Texas A & M University.
