About the Book
Bestselling author Katie Novak is back with an engaging UDL primer for parents that shows them how to support and advocate for learning opportunities that leverage their children’s strengths and interests.
Let Them Thrive will show you the most effective strategies for supporting your children based on research and best practices in the learning sciences. Why is this important? Because, as Katie writes in her introduction, “as parents, we can use all the help we can get. Parenting is exhausting, and sometimes thankless work, but it’s also the most rewarding job in the world when we get things right. Although our kids are wildly different from one another, we are all working toward the same goal: children who grow up to be happy and successful adults.”
Let Them Thrive by Katie Novak is available in paperback ($14.99, 170 pages, ISBN: 978-1930583160) and EPUB ($14.99, ISBN: 978-1930583177) format.
