david and goliathJust finished Malcolm Gladwell’s latest offering, ‘David and Goliath.’ I was particularly inspired by his chapter on ‘Desirable Difficulties,’ including conditions such as Dyslexia (and probably ADHD). What we assume to be disadvantages very often have a silver lining, provided these children are appropriately nurtured. A very encouraging read for any parent of a child with academic difficulties (or, for that matter, any parent!)
