Smart on the Inside: A True Story about Succeeding in Spite of Learning Disabilities (Paperback)
It was not easy for Eileen, who was categorized as "stupid" and "dumb" in school and bullied by her classmates. Yet, when she discovered her inner talents and applied them as a businesswoman, everyone saw she was really "Smart on the Inside." Smart on the Inside is Eileen Gold Kushner's personal story of overcoming her learning disabilities. It chronicles her journey from failure in school to success in business. Eileen's story has been captured by Special Education teacher Kathy Young, who has worked hand in hand with Eileen for more than 18 years to help children within their community and around the country. Both Kathy and Eileen say, "None of us can do it alone. We all need support and acceptance from others." Smart on the Inside helps parents understand the importance of encouraging children who may learn differently to believe in themselves; motivates teachers to teach students with disabilities the strategies that will help them succeed in school and in the workplace; shows students with learning differences that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance.
