Unlike role-playing where we pretend to understand the difficulties experienced by another person, Richard Lavoie presents the material in such a way that the viewer experiences the material just as someone would if they had certain learning disabilities. At times its extraordinarily funny, but its always profound. Lavoie offers rewards to the participants in the DVD if they can only understand what hes telling them and what he wants them to do. EXCELLENT * EXCELLENT * EXCELLENT. Ive purchased several copies for my lending library over the years (it was originally available as a video). Parents, teachers, coaches, organizational leaders...I dare say that EVERYONE could benefit by viewing How Difficult Can This Be?
