9780007555185: A Safe Place for Joey

From bestselling author and teacher Mary Maccracken comes the engaging and inspiring story of five troubled children who she fought to bring back from the brink

Joey is the class clown, but alone proves to be an intensely dark seven-year old who still can’t read.
Eric is a kindergartener, left withdrawn and speechless by the horrors he’s witnessed at home.
Alice appears the model fifth year child, but secretly scores zero on every maths test.
Charlie, an eight-year old, struggles to understand his place in the world, leaving him confused and alone.
Ben comes from a comfortable life at home, but has been called stupid so many times he now believes it.

These are some of the learning-disabled children who were in deep trouble until Mary MacCracken, an extraordinary therapist and teacher, works her magic with them and transforms their lives. Her heart-warming book is a testament to her talent, compassion and love.

About the Author:

Mary MacCracken is a learning disabilities specialist and the author of four bestselling memoirs. She was first published in the 1970s/80s. Mary is now retired and lives in New Jersey, but she is still passionate about sharing her amazing stories and experiences.

From Publishers Weekly:

MacCracken (City Kid; Lovey, a Very Special Child, a learning-disabilities therapist in New Jersey, personalizes the torments endured by many schoolchildren and their parents. According to statistics, one of every five students today has difficulty in some area of learning. The boys and girls who come to MacCracken for evaluation and tutoring are physically indistinguishable from their peers; many are intellectually superior yet unable to meet school and social norms in skills of reading, writing and calculating. Through the portraits of children she has treated, MacCracken shows what makes them bloom; in one case, even a dyslexic parent is helped. Explaining her profession in lay terms, the author indicates that her mission is not only remediation but guiding children to "become successful in their place of workschooland to improve the quality of their lives." Teachers and parents will enjoy and benefit from this sharing. First serial to McCall's.
