This is a tool to be used by you whether you are LD/ADHD and fighting against an oppressive pathology; a fourteen-year-old facing an educational future that you fear is out of your control; or a college student who is sick of running the rat race, spinning your wheels. And finally, this handbook is for you if you left school, nauseated by the shame our education deals out in droves, but are considering coming back to improve your future; or if you don't know what you want to do, but you want to change ... The core value of this book is that your education is a time to be empowered - to gain skills, perspectives, and experiences that will shape your future in a positive way. [The authors] explore how you can use your education as a means to redefine yourself or pursue an identity that is an honest reflection of who you are.-A naked introd."@en ;
