The typical classroom today is actually atypical. When today’s teachers walk into the classroom they see students who have a home life where they are being physically, sexually or emotionally abused. There are children who haven’t had anything to eat since their last meal at school the day before. There are children who are homeless, or living in a home where they may not have electricity or running water; or children who are living in their car. There are children who speak a language other than the one spoken in the class; or children from a different culture. Other children may have learning issues such as Autism which is growing at epidemic proportions in the United States. Children with attention deficit problems, learning disabilities, intellectual delays and emotional problems may also be in the class. Children with behavior issues may pose a significant challenge to the teacher’s ability to conduct a quality learning environment for all children.
The Handy Dandy Quick Reference Guide provides the teacher with a quick, easy to use resource for dealing with many of these issues in the classroom. The suggestions presented are teacher tested and have been proven successful in the classroom.

I will look for this book in paper format in the future. I am not posting a review at this point since it is not in kindle format.
definitely useful for an elementary teacher but not so much for secondary.
Useful and systematic information about how to deal with various learning disfunctionalities. It is useful both for the teacher - that is offered many tools to cope with various sensitive learning situations - and for the parent - that can easily understand a specific situation and continue the work done in the classroom.
I could see this thin reference book being good for new teachers. It is nice that it covers a wide array of issues in the class, physical, social, emotional etc, but the recommendations given are usually ones that anyone who has been teaching for a couple of years already knows. And not everything is solved by sitting closer to the teacher!
