What we hope to achieve with this book?

 

All children battle with self-esteem at one time or another, but children with learning challenges question their self-worth on a constant basis. It is critical that these children understand the obstacles they face, but even more crucial that they understand that these obstacles are not insurmountable, and that they can find ways to overcome them if they believe in themselves.

Each of the fifty stories in this book proves the world-changing power of self-belief. None let their learning challenge(s) stand in the way of dreaming big, aspiring more, and reaching farther. May every reader be inspired and know that there is tremendous potential in each of you. When you believe in yourself, you have the ability to achieve things you once thought were impossible. "Learning challenged” or not, you can achieve goals and reach success however you come to define it.

 Your purchase will help us make a difference to kids! 

By holding this book in your hands, it is a significant step closer towards the setup of community enhancement learning centers for children with learning challenges in Asia, where this issue remains stigmatized. When such children’s learning is customized to the way they learn best, these children are much more likely to overcome their challenges.
