Author Talks About
Living With Learning Disabilities
Acclaimed author Jonathon Mooney will speak at California State University, Sacramento at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 26 in Mariposa 1001.
His lecture, "Cultural Solutions: Tools for Academic Success and Educational Revolution," is part of the University's Year of Unity - a campus-wide commitment to promote peace, tolerance and understanding.
Mooney, a self-described academic failure who spells at a third grade level, graduated with honors from Brown University.
He is the coauthor of Learning Outside the Lines, written with David Cole. The book is a toolbox of unorthodox learning strategies and study techniques for students at all learning levels to help maximize their academic potential.
Based on the authors' personal experiences in the education system, the book discusses the frustration of classroom learning situations for people with disabilities such as dyslexia or attention deficit disorder.
Mooney will discuss his book and share his experiences as a learning- disabled student working to achieve success.
