Learning Disabilities: What Are They?: Helping Teachers and Parents Understand the Characteristics (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


"Specific learning disability" is by far the largest category of conditions served in special education. Unfortunately, few parents (and educators) truly understand what a learning disability is. Many erroneously believe it is a politically correct term for mildly mentally retarded or dull normal. Further, while most laypeople have heard of dyslexia, rarely do they know about other types of learning disabilities, such as dysnomia or dyscalculia. In addition to explaining what learning disabilities are and how they should be diagnosed, Learning Disabilities: What Are They? also explores the many different types of learning disabilities that affect children and adults today. Moreover, it presents a host of strategies and resources that can show parents and teachers how to help children succeed. Easy to read and informative, this book is essential for any parent or teacher who has a child with a learning disability.
