Learning disabilities are extremely common. Teachers and parents often make the mistake of thinking children with these disabilities aren't trying hard enough or simply aren't as intelligent as other students—but in reality, young people with learning disabilities simply need special attention and a different approach to learning. Read about Charlie Begay, who thought he liked school, at least until he got to first grade. Now, no matter how hard he tries, he just can't make the words on the pages make sense—and his teacher doesn't seem to understand how hard he's trying. As you read Charlie's story, you'll discover some of the issues young people with learning disabilities face in today's educational system—and you'll learn how the educational system can help students overcome their disabilities.
