Editors Note Like many people with a learning disability, Dayle Upham experienced academic and professional failure. Yet somehow she found the inner strength to persevere and ultimately obtain her Ph.D. What is the strength? How did she find it? And what strategies did she develop to help her cope? These are the questions addressed in this poignant, personal account. Each chapter is a reflection on her experiences, offering dramatic examples of the academic and social problems she endured. Virginia Trumbull, Dayle's mentor and a special education expert, explains the implications of each situation in the context of today's research. An essential strategy section describes the unique and successful coping strategies Dayle developed to help her overcome her disability.
Editors Note 1 Making the Grade is a powerful illustration of the problems and frustrations of living with a learning disability.
